After the chaos that followed the accidental turret explosion on the Mississippi, Lieutenant 
Zellars was found grasping the flood valve which extinguished a burning powder train and 
saved his ship. Flaming death was not as swift as his sense of duty and his will tot save 
his comrades at any cost to himself. His was the spirit that makes the Service live.

Nanking in 1927... 

WANTON destruc- 
tion and sudden 
death as warfare rages through an 
ancient Chinese city. American 
refugees send distress calls to a 
man-of-war in the harbor. Ensign 
Phelps and a small landing force 
rush to aid them, and succeed in 
covering their retreat to the city 
wall. Here, aided by a protecting 
screen of shells from the warship, 
they scale the wall with hand-made 
ropes and successfully complete 
their dash to safety.

The Rescue of 
the Vinh Long... 

CIRCLING the blaz- 
ing French am- 
munition ship, Vinh Long, in the 
sea of Marmora, the destroyer 
Bainbridge tried desperately to 
get a line aboard. Meeting confu- 
sion and failure, her commander, 
Atley Edwards, unhesitatingly 
rammed the stricken ship and de- 
spite the bursting ammunition and 
exploding gasoline held this pre- 
carious position until every man 
had clambered over the side to his 
decks and to safety.

Executive Department 

r T""'HE mission of the Naval Academy is to mold the material received into educated 
gentlemen, thoroughly indoctrinated with honor, uprightness, and truth, with 
practical rather than academic minds, with thorough loyalty to country, with a 
groundwork of educational fundamentals upon which experience afloat may build 
the finished naval officer, capable of upholding whenever and wherever may be 
necessary the honor of the United States; and withal giving due consideration that 
healthy minds in healthy bodies are necessities for the fulfillment of the individual 
missions of the graduates; and that the fullest efficiency under this mission can be 
obtained only if, through humane yet firm and just discipline, the graduates carry 
into the service respect and admiration for this academy.

Fourth Row: Sadler, Metzger, Youngren, Morgan, Kirby, Dunleavy, Foy, Olavesen, Barbot, Stevenson 

Seamanship and Flight Tactics 

THE mission of the Department of Seamanship is 
primarily to help provide the broad foundations upon 
which the young officer may confidently build to become 
proficient in commanding men and ships; and secondarily 
to help provide him with such practical experience and 
knowledge as will enable him to become, soon after 
graduation, a useful member of the United States Navy. 

First Row: Leahy, Peyton, Reordan, Robinson.. Lake, Welch, Hitchcock 
Second Row: Stout, Wolleson, Roane, Evans, Bryan, Ramsey, Davis 
Third Row: Bullinger, Boltz, Hall, Dancy, Hartwig, Winecoff 

Ordnance and Gunnery 

TO educate Officers with "practical rather than aca- 
demic minds" — such is part of the mission of the 
Naval Academy. This distinction in terms of Gunnery 
language is the difference between hits and misses — 
success and failure — victory and defeat. 

Ballistics, fire-control, torpedoes, mines — the long 
hours spent in study of these subjects may some day be 
well rewarded when in battle we hear sung out over 
JB "No Change — Rapid Fire!"

Head o jDepart»h>it 

First Row: Patterson, O'Brien, Benson, Calhoun, Logan, Gatch, Wild 
Second Row: Johnson, Gearing, Brittain, Irish, Kincaid, Arnold, Abson, Austin, Floyd 


TO point the way between the sky and the sea from 
one port to another has been the duty of the navi- 
gator since history began. To insure the mastery of 
fundamental principles of navigation and to provide 
that, at graduation, ensigns will be prepared to perform 
navigational duties afloat is the aim of the Department 
of Navigation. 

First Row: Bolgiano, Wood, Ertz, Leighton, Penw, Johnson, Booth, Hutchinson, Beneze

Engineering and Aeronautics 

A MAN-OF-WAR, be it a battleship, a submarine or 
an airplane, is a complex engineering machine. 
Intelligent operation requires supervision and direction 
by competent engineers. Proficiency in engineering 
drawing, a thorough study of basic mechanisms and 
structure and engineering materials, the theory and 
laws of gases and their application to power machinery, 
the development of a resourceful mind able to cope 
with intricate engineering problems — is the aim of the 
Department of Engineering and Aeronautics.

MATHEMATICS at the Academy deals with exact 
relations existing between quantities or magni- 
tudes and operations, and of the methods by which, in 
accordance with these relations, quantities sought are 
deducible from others known. The backbone of the 
Academics, it is the stern Goliath attacked daily by 
midshipmen with slide rule and pencil. Were it not 
for the existence of this ancient science and naval officers 
thoroughly versed in its intricacies, there could not be 
our Navy.

Fourth Row: McLean, Agnew, Austin, Moosbrugger, Bass, Cofer, Hayter, Manseau, Marsh, Southworth, Gray 

Electrical Engineering and Physics 

IT is the aim of the department of Electrical Engineer- 
ing and Physics to acquaint the Midshipman with 
the fundamental laws and principles of chemical, physi- 
cal, and electrical science so that when he leaves the 
Academy he will take with him a scientific habit of 
thought that will enable him to enlarge his professional 
knowledge and usefulness and to find the solutions to 
the technical problems that arise.

Second Row: Verge, Brereton, Lewis, Pease, Kelsey, Sturdy, Merrick, Fitch, Myers, Dietrich, Hobby 
Third Row: West, Oliver, Cook, Darden, Doty 

English and History 

ENGLISH and History are seemingly far removed from 
the practical work of the future officer as he goes 
to the bridge, turret, spotting station, or engine room, 
yet they are fundamentally related to every activity he 
will have in the Navy where administration by spoken 
or written language is essential, and where he is equally 
concerned with traditions, great leaders, vitalizing 
ideas, and whatever gives significance to life. 

First Row: Colton, Olivet, Shelly, Beauregard, Fernandez, Ziroli, Fournon 
Second Row: Lajoye, Purdie, Scoggins, Maigret, Weaver, C. V. Fowler, Winchell, Chanler, Caskie, Beightler, Holbrook 
Third Row: Coldwell, Siarnes, Campbell, Sewell, Michelet, Jordan, Dahlgren, Ware, Smith, McPeake, J. W. Fowler 

Modern Languages 

IN the life of a naval officer, who as a class is the widest 
travelled of men, there come many times when a 
thorough knowledge of a foreign tongue is necessary 
and useful. To produce graduates who can converse 
with moderate ease upon normal subjects and service 
life in either French, Spanish, Italian or German is the 
aim of the Department of Modern Languages. 

Comdr. A. T. Beauregard 
Head of Department

Second Row: Taylor, Burr, Goodbody, Zearbaugh, Lowry, Mills, Faust, Thomas, Baker, Bancroft 

Third Row: Yanquell, Owsley, Lynch, Morris, Laughlin 


THE aim of the department is to provide a haven for 
minor ills and a place where major ills may be healed 
and to inculcate the essentials and habits of first aid, 
naval and personal hygiene and general sanitation, the 
great value of which it is essential that a commanding 
officer should appreciate in order to conserve the health 
and morale of his command. 

First Row: Manc, Hughes, Bowstrom, Hall, Wilcox, Overesch, E. B. Taylor, Thomas, Schctz 

Second Row: Webb, Oriland, Foster, Walsh, Doc Snyder, Sazama, T. G. Taylor 

Third Row: Deladrier, Lynch, Wilson, Aahold, Pirrote 

Physical Training 

THE NAVAL ACADEMY is a school for real men. 
Every phase of physical effort from football to fenc- 
ing and boxing is thoroughly organized and coached to 
develop the physical side of us all. The Regiment takes 
great pride in the many athletic victories won every 
year, which are a result of the great prowess and spirit 
of our teams and the untiring efforts of the Physical 
Training Department.

Salvaging the 
S-51 . . . 

FATHOMS deep in the 
icy seas of the North 
Atlantic, the volunteer divers from 
the Falcon worked desperately 
against time and deadly gas to 
rescue the imprisoned crew of the 
S-5I. Unable to get reliefs, they 
remained below far longer than it 
was safe for them, braving the 
dreaded "bends" in their vain, 
heroic attempt to save their com- 






|NE would think that after four years 
together that everybody would know 
all they wanted to know about everyone else. But, no. 
You have to compile a biography and extol his merits 
in no uncertain terms and leave out all about the times 
he has borrowed money from you and how many times 
he has gotten under your skin before breakfast and 
aggravating habits that after awhile become cumulative. 

So what you see here is the censored edition of our 
own impressions of our roommates — exaggerated and 
smoothed over and prettied up by a copyreader. But 
we've lived with them for four years, so they must be 
worth while, after all.

"Burt" "Dave" "f.B." 

Youngstown, Ohio 

BURT left many friends and an envi- 
able four-year high school record as 
a versatile athlete at Youngstown, Ohio, 
to be one of '32 — a classmate we are all 
proud to have. 

The first summer was spent in training 
for that plebe varsity. In fact, every 
spring and fall will find Burt playing that 
game of football with everything that's 
in him. A snapped ankle, leg, a wrist or 
a hand has made the going all but easy 
though there is nothing that can keep him 
out. In the winter boxing takes his time. 
As a protege of Spike Webb, Burt can 
hold his own in any ring. For keeping 
fit he delves into every sport and every 
spare minute will find him in some corner 
of the gym. 

Conscientious work coupled with an 
old sacred inspiration helps Dave to 
tackle the academics hard. His many and 
varied academy activities bring him in 
close contact with both the officers and 
men of all four classes. 

Living a cheerful, serious day — always 
doing his best to help others — makes Burt 
a real companion, a perfect shipmate. 


"Dave" "Shum" "DeClinton" 

Potsdam, New York 

Dave came down from Potsdam, New 
York, with an old-timer's record in 
baseball. However, his hopes for partici- 
pation in Navy athletics were shattered 
when he received a broken condyle and 
a permanently weakened jaw from a col- 
lision sustained at Plebe varsity baseball 

He did not allow over two months at 
the hospital, during plebe year, to keep 
him back in the Academics or in making 
youngster cruise, but kept right in with 
the rest of the class. 

Determined to find some useful outlet 
for those few spare moments, DeWitt 
turned his attention to music. A group 
of music lovers could be found in Shum's 
room any time listening to him pound the 
xylophone or play the cornet. 

DeWitt could always be depended 
upon for his best. He laughed off his 
disappointments and was always ready to 
start the next morning with a cheery 
"Let's plug 'em today, Burt." 

We all know that Dave, through his 
quiet, determined, and never failing ef- 
forts, will make his way in the Fleet as 
he has done here at the Academy.

"Lou" "Our Al" "Gadge" 

Lexington, Kentucky 

"tt t hy, when I was seven years old 
W I made twenty dollars a day 
driving a mule team." Such a statement 
might sound a little far-fetched coming 
from some people, but Lou is the sort of 
person who can say something like that 
and make incredulous listeners believe it. 
In spite of certain utterances like the 
one that begins this discourse on our hero 
from the Blue Grass and Horse State, 
Lou was not given to exaggeration in 
some things by any means. There was no 
exaggeration in his actions on the foot- 
ball field. Who hasn't seen him toiling 
away on Farragut Field during the long 
fall afternoons — who hasn't seen him in 
a sweat-soaked football suit smashing 
holes in the line, smearing ball-carriers, 
and otherwise making things unpleasant 
for the opposition on Saturday after- 
noons? He was and is what is known as 
"one sweet tackle." 

Happy-go-lucky, yet still able to shoul- 
der the heaviest responsibilities; savvy as 
the savviest savoir but always eager to 
learn ; Lou will always be remembered 
as one who richly deserves the respect and 
admiration that is his.

"Ted" "Hodg" "Gadge" 

Phoenix, Arizona 

CCrri hrow a fit for us, Ted!" "Throw

beds and even his pals took a terrible 
drubbin', — who can forget those realistic 
exhibitions "Our Gadge" gave us 
"Youngster Year"? Thus began the in- 
delible impression Ted has upon all of us. 

As an athlete he is a crack infielder and 
not a day passes in the spring but that 
this boy boasts of a swollen hand from 
stopping hot ones at short. He is cer- 
tainly faithful to the game, even through- 
out Second Class Summer, and will no 
doubt be one of the best by the spring 
of '32. 

Academics hold no terrors for him be- 
cause, even though he stayed within these 
walls during two Christmas leaves, he can 
still lay them aside for a good "session." 
He handles responsibilities like a "chief" 
and with a memory that would put Rip- 
ley in the shade, he has a flair for the 
blase and worldly things of life. 

We are with you, Ted, whether you 
are on the China Station or back here 
with your cheese-knife — may the best be 
always yours!

"Sam" "Pern" "Fu" 

Alexandria, Virginia 

Sam joined our class late in Plebe Sum- 
mer, a quiet, unobtrusive fellow. His 
period of seclusion was short, however, 
since his name began to appear promi- 
nently on the athletic lists and it has re- 
mained on those lists since then. Al- 
though best known on the lacrosse team, 
Sam has been known to engage in foot- 
ball and basketball, finding time to make 
the Varsity squads in both sports. Ver- 
satility is Sam's second nature. 

Sam has not limited himself to gaining 
fame in the field of sport alone; he is 
also one of the most popular fellows in 
the class, both with those in and outside 
the Academy. His perpetual smile and 
his ability to decide just what should be 
done under the prevailing circumstances 
have contributed much to his popularity, 
and to the fact that his list of friends and 
acquaintance is endless. 

It would be futile to wish Sam "Good 
luck" since luck plays such a small part 
in his make-up; rather let us say "Here's 
how to your success in future life, Sam, 
and may we always be shipmates in spirit 
if not in the flesh." 


"Garge" "Fatboy" 


BORN in Panama, with an undying 
thirst — after knowledge ; he has 
spent his life in quenching this thirst, and 
making various attempts to straighten 
curly hair. The hair won't be straight- 
ened but the knowledge has been gar- 
nered from here, there and yonder, and 
it covers many things, not the least of 
which is Academics. 

He proved his versatility by being a 
member of the water polo squad and the 
Hop Committee at the same time, and he 
didn't neglect the things in between these 
extremes. Bad luck made him give up the 
suicide club, so he spent his time climb- 
ing ropes for exercise. 

Blessed with a good nature, a smooth 
line, a great liking for playing the game, 
any game, and a wide grin whatever hap- 
pens, whether it's on liberty in Barcelona 
or taking a bad exam — he takes them as 
they come. 

A man who would go through hell's 
fire for a friend, truly one the Navy can 
be proud to have graduated, and we are 
proud to have for a classmate, that's the 

"I ain't putting out the dope."

"Ted" "Teadore" "Whitey" 

Flushing, Long Island, New York 

"tjey, Teadore! How in the devil do 

J_ JL you work this prob?" 

Stop by the room any time and you will 
hear Ted patiently explaining something 
to someone. He is not satisfied with do- 
ing his own work but is always willing to 
help a struggling roommate, classmate, or 
an unsat plebe. If Teadore knows how, 
he is always ready to put out the dope. 

Even though Ted rates among the 
select few in class standing, he doesn't 
let the academics take all his time, by any 

No football team is complete without 
its manager; so Ted determined that 
nothing should be lacking in the Navy 
football team, and consequently became 
varsity manager. 

Ted's good nature and willing smile 
help to pass away the gloomiest moments 
of Academy life. Freely lending a help- 
ing hand and a little encouragement at 
all times has made everlasting friends for 
Teadore. Carry on the way you have 
started, Ted, and your naval career will 
be something to be proud of.

"Tallula" "Rees" 

Tallula, Illinois 

This carefree lad, after gracing the Illini 
campus for a while, decided to let 
Uncle Sam's Haven for the Weary be his 
Alma Mater. From the first his career has 
been one long battle with the Steam De- 
partment. He always crashed through at 
the end of each term and showed them 
more about their engines and gadgets 
than they knew themselves. He breezed 
through the other Acs as easily as he did 
through checks from home. 

Tallula is always ready to drag your 
brick, or stand your watch, or smoke your 
skags, or do anything else you ask him 
to do. He can talk anyone out of 
anything, and many is the time we have 
paid him back for things he has borrow- 
ed from us. At every bull-session he sat 
in his story always ended the discussion; 
no one could beat it. In athletics he 
carried on as in everything else. As 
there was no heat in the radiators in the 
spring, our hero went out for track and 
did well enough. 

Tallula has been a darn good wife, for 
better or for worse; here's luck, and hop- 
ing we're shipmates again.

"TT thoopee" Holloway, despite his 
VV name, did not ride into Crab- 
town from his native plains of Texas 
with a whoop and a holler, amidst the 
clatter of hoofs and the spatter of bullets 
on the storied bricks of Annapolis. In 
fact, he did not even ride a horse, but like 
most Naval Academy candidates arrived 
on our own Toonerville trolley, the W. 
B. & A. 

Like them in that respect, Whoopee 
differed from the majority of his fellow 
aspirants to naval fame in that he pos- 
sessed a certain cool and unobtrusive self- 
assurance, a trait which had already car- 
ried him through a successful prep school 
career at the renowned Marion Institute 
of Alabama and which was destined to 
make him a midshipman and an officer of 
the higher type. 

Cool and self-reliant, yet quiet and un- 
assuming, a sincere friend to all those 
meriting his friendship, but a tough 
hombre when he is crossed — that's 
Whoopee Holloway — Up Five! 


"Al" "Shine" "Elayne" 

Niles, California 

Take one look at this tall, bronzed fel- 
low and you can rightly guess that he 
is from California. Al spent his boy- 
hood near the town of Niles but this 
little city could not keep him long. The 
University of California was all right for 
two years but then the desire to go to sea 
became so strong that he joined the Mer- 
chant Marine. Panning gold in Alaska, 
beach combing in Manila, carrying on in 
Nagasaki, buying straw hats in Ecuador 
and traveling around in general were 
Allen's chief occupations during this pe- 
riod. This life on the sea appealed to 
him so much that he came to the Naval 

The Academics have yet to give this 
savoir any trouble. Several points above 
starring in Dago, Al's one wish is, "Darn 
all this other stuff anyway; I wish we 
had five periods of Spanish." 

Whether in the Service or out of it, 
Al's sterling character, self-assurance, and 
attractive personality will carry him to the 
top and anyone who has associated with 
him will be proud to say, "I was once 
shipmates with A. M. Shinn."

"Sti" "Rolo" 

Comfort, Texas 

FROM the broad prairies of Texas to 
the rolling waters of Chesapeake Bay 
is a long, hard journey, but Emil was 
dauntless and an adventurer who had a 
heart of oak, triple-bound with brass 
coupled with a desire to become an ad- 
miral. So he easily overcame all difficul- 
ties placed in his way by the powers 
that be. 

After spending two years at Texas 
A.&M. learning the basic laws of mili- 
tary science and a smattering of engi- 
neering, he was well equipped to over- 
come the obstacles of the Ac department. 

And in the springtime with his bat 
and mitt he went whistling merrily to 
baseball practice. During the long win- 
ter months you were always able to find 
this Don Juan out at Carvel Hall meet- 
ing, and conquering, the hearts of the 
fair Washington and Baltimore debs. 
In the fall he was out fighting for the 
honor of " '32" in the hard-fought Sun- 
day afternoon gridiron classics. 

He is always cheerful and ready to 
lend a hand helping a classmate. 
Truly the kind of a shipmate everyone 
wants to have.

"Van" "Innocence" 

Crosby, Minnesota 

Van left Minnesota determined to 
join the Navy and see the world, 
from the air if possible. A few weeks 
of prepping in Crabtown convinced him 
that he wanted to stay longer and as a 
result he entered with the young hope- 
fuls of '32. Since then the success of 
his career at the Academy has never been 
in doubt academically, athletically or 

Athletically Van is a star pin-pusher. 
Attracted to the sport early in Plebe year 
he soon became a valuable member of 
the team and was elected to captain it 
his last year here. 

Van has no end of friends, in the 
Academy and out. The day is never 
complete unless he has received at least 
two letters and a "special" — in all likeli- 
hood from the same girls' school. He 
is always devising new, if impracticable, 
inventions or designing new sketches 
that should have been in the steam book. 

His personality and good nature will 
continue to make friends for him wher- 
ever he may go and we predict a long 
and happy cruise.

"Len" "Hopeless" "El Frazoo" 
Ottumwa, Iowa 

Ladies and gentlemen, there comes a 
time in the life of every young 
man when he must make a bow to his 
vast and mighty army of hero worship- 
ers. For your personal satisfaction, El 

"Where is this guy Frazer?" Thus 
began the successful career of Hopeless 
as one of that mighty organization of 
"Youse Middies." Hailing from the 
Great Corn State, but without the cus- 
tomary ears of corn sticking from his 
pockets, he took to the Navy like a true 

An outstanding figure on the basket- 
ball court and cinder track, Len never- 
theless found no difficulty in standing 
among the first few of his class aca- 
demically. He always had time to help 
a struggling classmate or a bewildered 
plebe to get that old 2.5. The "Star 
Department" lost money when Hopeless 
decided to star, because anything he set 
his mind to do, he did with such en- 
thusiasm that nothing could stop him. 

Frazoo, a true friend and a real class- 
mate. Here's luck to you. 


"Oscar" "Sharty" "Halfpint" 
Butler, Indiana 

OSCAR is the original halfpint whole- 
hearted Hoosier — little but loud, 
friendly, and absolutely irrepressible. 
"Say, where I come from ninety per- 
cent of the high school basketball teams 
could take these Eastern outfits." We've 
been hearing that for four years now 
and some day we're going to find out 
about it. Academically, Oscar stood two 
in his high school class — (they gradu- 
ated the other three to get rid of them) 
but the Navy's Math Department played 
tag with him for two and a half years. 
"Whatj a get for the fourth prob? 
'Sfunny, I got four times that much!" 

Parker's size kept him off the Varsity 
but he dampened more than one hopeful 
guard's ambitions with one-handed bas- 
kets from impossible angles. And class 
football — ! The kid smeared lots of 
plays because the opposition didn't see 
him — had he weighed forty pounds more 
he could have found a suit small enough. 

A great believer in Jones' Constants — 
"If you divide my answer by five thirty- 
sevenths you get the one in the book. 
This stuff is fruit!"

"Paul" "Piffen" "Fing" 

Hudson, Ind. 

Early one morning in July, 1928, 
another big college man burst forth 
in all his glory upon the naval authori- 
ties and was warmly welcomed by the 
medical corp, as usual — in the usual 

Plebe summer found "Piffen" deeply 
engrossed in the circle of events and 
then Plebe year swallowed him up for 
the first year of his career at the Naval 

Youngster year came and went with the 
young lad well entrenched in good 
standing with the academic departments. 
Second Class year passed quickly with 
many funny and pleasant experiences 
that every embryo Naval Officer goes 
through, and a full-fledged first classman 
emerged upon the horizon to finish his 
day at Annapolis. 

Piffen's principal habit is to listen 
well and say little. This makes him 
respected and liked by everyone. How- 
ever, when the time comes to talk, he is 
right there with good dope. 

Not greasy, not a red Mike, but far 
from a snake — we wish you luck and 
happiness, old pal. 


"Mike Fink" 

Deming, New Mexico 

Mike Fink, out run, out hop, out 
jump . . . and just as good a 
boy as his name indicates. Not a Red 
Mike, either, not by a long shot; but 
just a good fellow with both sexes. 

Our patient early decided to lead a 
military life. We find him at the New 
Mexico Military Institute for the pre- 
liminary stage of prepping for the Naval 
Academy. Then one fine day in July, 
Mike decided to come for an extended 
stay at the Academy. Plebe year passed 
with quite a few "spoons". For in his 
youth fame had come to our short boy. 

He wasn't so "savvy" but his room 
was a Mecca for the lovelorn, and the 
bull sessions recorded in the annals of 
the radiator club find Mike presiding 
with much joviality. Mike Finks are 
few and far between boys, but you're 
lucky when you know one. That's the 
way we feel, although 'tis said he'll 
never see thirty-five again.

"Bob" "R.J.C." "Gorgeous" 

Des Moines, Iowa 

Bob has that rare quality, found in 
few, of making friends with every- 
one with whom he comes into contact. 
To know him well is to form a friend- 
ship never to be forgotten, — a lasting 
bond immeasurable in its warmth and 

Shanghaied the middle of youngster 
year as a result of an extended tour in 
the hospital, he accepted fate with a 
smile and proceeded to win laurels in 
many fields, including athletic, academic, 
and social. As an executive he proved 
his worth as Chairman of the Ring 
Dance Committee and directed and ad- 
vised to the smallest detail — to make a 
deserved success of one of the most im- 
portant of the class functions. The time- 
worn phrase "What? — No mail ?" must be 
mentioned but it may also be said that he 
does not have occasion to use it too fre- 
quently as he has, although he will never 
admit the fact, a way with the "wimmin". 
Pipe dreams amid imposing clouds of 
smoke are continuous, for he has an un- 
paralled collection of briars — a pipe for 
every hour of the day. 


Ft. Madison, Iowa 

Charlie is that wonderful combina- 
tion of a fighter and a friend. He 
doesn't make useless expenditures of 
energy, but once he has started some- 
thing he can be counted on to finish it. 
He has had his weak moments, some 
of which have never become public, but 
he has always been able to take care of 
himself. Charlie is loyal to everything 
that commands his loyalty. He is will- 
ing to work and able to get results as 
his five years on the Log have shown. 
Oh yes, he is a five year man as a re- 
sult of spending most of his youngster 
second term in the hospital. His out- 
standing social assets are a tenor voice 
and wavy blond hair. These combined 
with other characteristics pleasing to the 
feminine mind and heart have kept him 
from any loneliness on weekends, but as 
yet he thinks himself immune from any 
serious attempt on his freedom. 

Charlie's loyalty, his strong person- 
ality, and his courage will help him 
toward a successful career. And it will 
be good fortune to be shipmates with 
him whether in the Navy or in the world

"Ray" "Felix" "Snorter" "Billy" 
At Large 

Being an Army junior, Ray entered the 
Service under a handicap, but he lost 
no time in living it down, and we soon 
forgave and forgot. 

His early history reads like the diary 
of a traveling salesman. Home to him is 
wherever he happens to be, and he is full 
of tales of far places. 

A devotion to horizontal exercise and 
Cosmo has cost him many hard battles 
with the Academics, only one of which 
went an extra round, however. 

"Too light for heavy work and too 
heavy for light work" is the way he ex- 
plains his failure to collect any "N's," 
though he's tried everything once, includ- 
ing the radiator club, which finally 
claimed him for its own. 

He habitually drags 3.5's and claims 
to be a red mike; he hardly ever bones, 
yet stays sat. and swears he's wooden. 
More power to him ! We know he'll be 
successful, no matter what the task. 


"Joe" "Bobby" "Bob" 

Sandusky, Ohio 

Joe started his career by shooting ban- 
dits in San Domingo, fighting mos- 
quitoes in Haiti, and exploring danger- 
ous jungles in the Philippines. Later on 
in his young life he attended Manlius 
Military School in New York; but de- 
siring big game, along with the wish to 
become a "Mighty Marine", he soon 
landed in Quaint Old Annapolis. 

Bobby has encountered two big ob- 
stacles during his stay at the Academy: 
finding a suitable radiator to play pi- 
nochle by and being able to at least think 
he is in love. But on the other hand he 
has his good qualities — as all sailors hap- 
pen to have said articles. Bobby never 
worries about academics, although if you 
should happen to pass his room at night 
you would probably hear a murmured 
"Aint it Awful". 

Being a Marine Junior Bob has made 
many friends throughout the Service and 
will probably add many more before his 
days are over.

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania 

SINCE early Colonial days Pennsylvania 
has provided the Navy with many 
stalwart "Wolunteers." George is one 
of the best. 

Graduating from John Harris High 
School, "Rip" came to the Academy with 
great ambition to learn the seafaring art. 
He was good material to start with, and 
his interest in technical subjects has given 
him a knowledge of details which is the 
envy of many — his roommate among 
them. Ask him the number of turrets or 
the displacement of a new cruiser and 
the answer is exact and quickly given. 

With never a fear about studies, he 
has devoted his recreation time to muscle- 
building sports for four long years, and 
liked it. The Log has claimed much of 
his time — and the ladies! — well, no one 
resists that sunny disposition. 

All in all, Rip is a real Navy man 
whose place is out in the Fleet. He has 
made many friendships "by the Bay," 
and his future success is certain. So, 
with graduation, it's — "Goodbye, and the 
best of luck!" 



Salt Lake City, Utah 

Win, born and raised in the "Great 
American Desert" must have had a 
deep water sailor somewhere in his an- 
cestry or else his childish hours spent in 
the very salty Great Salt Lake instilled 
the desire to be a real "salt" and join our 

Our young hero inherited the old 
Mormon traits of captivating the fair sex 
and making life enjoyable whether it be 
in a desert or Naval Academy. It was a 
lucky day for Navy when Win decided 
that he could do better shining bright- 
work than building bridges and so leave 
his engineering course at Utah U. for the 
school for young boys on the Severn. 

Winning a reputation as a savoir early 
in plebe year, he has held his star with 
little boning and much snaking. But 
Win's gifts are not confined solely to these 
lines, for he was one of the stalwarts of 
the tennis, wrestling and cross country 
teams for three seasons. 

This is a man machined to a water- 
tight fit for his place in the service, and 
we can only predict the brightest of 
futures and wish him the best of luck.

Denver, Colorado 

Harry was at first more or less a 
wanderer. Born in South Carolina, 
an Army junior, he lived in Texas, the 
Philippines, Maine, and Colorado. Of 
them all Colorado towers in his estima- 
tion and he will try to sell it to you any 
old time. 

Academics are one thing which never 
worried our hero, who starred plebe year 
and stood very near stellar positions dur- 
ing the remainder of his course. 

We do remember a sad tragedy which 
hit him soon after youngster Christmas 
leave; but for the hardy son of the west 
that he is, new flames sprang up from 
the ashes of the old. 

On the tennis courts Harry can make 
the best of them step and on no few 
occasions has he upset some of the cocky 

One thing he always has in stock is 
plenty of refreshments. He refuses to

"Fritz" "Buddy" 

Fritz arrived at the Academy one early 
July morning during plebe summer 
with his left wrist all bandaged up. 
He had fallen off a house while helping 
his big brother put up a radio aerial. He's 
a south-paw; but he had to learn to eat 
with his right hand, as he still does. 

"Never worry" is his slogan and how 
well he inspired his two wives with it. 
His cheerfulness is contagious and he 
possesses a personality that wins him 
countless friends. 

Buddy never came back from leave 
without having met a new O.A.O. — far 
more lovely, wonderful, inspiring, fas- 
cinating, unrelentingly bewitching than 
ever before. "Just wait till you see her 
picture. She's a cold 4.0!" 

Athletics seemed to be as natural for 
Fritz as being exceedingly savvy in aca- 
demic work. Running the "half" was 
his track specialty. Boxing interested 
him a great deal. 

Fritz is an active mind, overflowing 
with life, always genial, a ready wit, easy 
to like, and above all an unbeatable 
comrade in arms.

Defiance, Ohio 

Truly this is a hard task, for in so 
short a space as is allotted to us, 
Charley's qualities can never be shown at 
their best. 

Out of the wilds of Ohio he came. 
Stopping first at Marion Institute, he 
finally arrived at the portals of a four- 
year training in preparation for a naval 
career. At the very outset of his course 
Charley suffered an injury that hampered 
his athletic career. He was showing 
much promise at end on the football 
team when a broken leg sent him to the 
hospital and off the squad. 

As a roommate he cannot be equaled. 
Congenial, smiling, and agreeable at all 
times he could never make himself dis- 
agreeable if he had tried. He never 
tried, however. There was no shirking 
of his share of the responsibility. In 
fact he usually accepted more than his 
share. That smile was and always will 
be ever present. When he greeted you 
with it you could almost feel its warmth. 

May you have a pleasant and profitable 
journey into the future, Charley. 


"Sonny Boy" "Tom" "Tim" 
Upper Sandusky, Ohio 

What! have you not heard of the

start football claimed our blushing young 
hero ; he is really a high flyer, he craves

As a pal he has no equal; as a wife 
one could not ask for a better choice.

from the Admiral down to the lowliest

"Goose" "Red" "Fish" 


River Forest, Illinois 

OUT of the teeming boiling capital of 
the Middle West, out of the bus- 
tling turmoil, stock yards, gangsters, big 
business, grain, cigar smoke — came 
Youth, refreshed with Life's first 
glimpses of untold mysteries. The ties

broken — the career of a sailor beckoning 
him. Thus Clipper came among us, with 
us, and for us, on that hot July day many 
moons ago — head up, and shoulders high, 
ready for what might come. 

Clipper has always managed to 
straight-arm the academics. Very rarely 
is he not able to finish up the hour with 
a few pages of the current book of the 
month. Reading and water polo are his 
favorite pastimes. 

You have only to see the bow wave 
rising over his features as he heads for 
the goal in the pool to know whence 
came his nickname, Clipper Bow. You 
have only to watch him play to realize 
the meaning of "Suicide Squad."

Out of the mountains of Tennessee

that some scoffers 'low as how he must

That sunny Slayden smile has illum-

Memphis, Tennessee, suh. 
Where yo' from?" 

And Bunker Hill Jr. becomes a sailor. 
It was not as easy as that though. He 
was sinking for the third time when a 
small voice came to the rescue and said 
"Go get 'em, George!" And George got 
'em. Constant hard work made one-time 
green academics ripen into delicious fruit. 

Although a Red Mike of the nth de- 
gree he was unable to escape the wiles 
of Miss Springfield with whom he spent 
many a leisurely afternoon strolling 
around the terrace. 

There is nothing indefinite about 
Bunky. He makes up his mind to do a 
thing and does it. Always ready to do 
a good turn, a truer friend never lived. 
He has a smile for everyone and is 
readily distinguished by a sincere and in- 
imitable laugh. 

Bunky's biggest weakness is a diminu- 
tive blue-eyed Rebel back in sunny Ten- 
nessee. There is only one cure for which 
both have been patiently (?) waiting. 
God bless them. 


"Al" "Kapple" 

Independence, Iowa 

A Year at Iowa State University left 
Al with a happy memory and a de- 
termination to see what the rest of the 
world looked like. He joined us early 
in the bewildering period of Plebe sum- 
mer, and soon learned that the books he 
had read concerning the life of a mid- 
shipman had painted idealistic pictures. 

Short, conscientious periods of study 
have kept him on the safe side of aca- 
demics. The remainder of any study 
hour is always willingly spent in swap- 
ping yarns and discussing his absorbing 
interest in life — people and their actions. 

Al believes that athletics were de- 
veloped solely for amusement. One 
afternoon he can be found in the gym 
wrestling. The next will find him shoot- 
ing, bowling, or playing soccer. 

The future? The only admission he 
will make is this, "Wait until I get out- 
side of the wall and see which way the 
wind is blowing." 

A spirit of friendliness, an ability to 
conquer reverses, and a determination 
that carries him to the finish make Al a 
real shipmate.

"Hatch" "Ali" "Cabeezer" 

Athens, Georgia 

Twixt Harvey's two pet Southern de- 
scriptive expressions of "little ole" 
and "gret big" lay many morsels of hu- 
morous tales which will go down to Davy 
Jones' Locker with any of the boys who 
may have been fortunate enough to be 
around during one of his impromptu joke 
spreading fests. 

Like all true Gawgians, the lad con- 
sidered it a natural pride and joy as well 
as a sectional requisite to be well versed 
in a new line of Southerly rhetoric at all 
times, and that boy could swap them with 
the most renowned of the artists on the 
Second Deck. Leave was merely a 
process of acquiring horizon for Harvey, 
and his mania for gathering a new stock 
of banter was exceeded only by his ex- 
treme love for chocolate eclairs. 

Possessed of a colorful individuality, 
Ali has surrounded himself with a host 
of friends. He's convinced of one basic 
fact in life; namely, that there is no rule 
of law, love, or roommates that can possi- 
bly apply to him personally if it is incon- 
venient. And you have to admire the lad 
for it when you see how peacefully he

"Jack" "Pins" "Pince and Needles' 
Long Beach, California 

Originally from Philadelphia, Jack 
migrated at a tender age to Cali- 
fornia, and immediately went native. In 
spite of — or because of — four years by 
the Bay, he's still as rabid as any native 

Al's four years at Annapolis haven't 
been dull ; but, on the contrary, have car- 
ried with them most of the spice in life 
— including the bumps. It's still a matter 
of question as to whether making the 
football team in his Youngster year, the 
source of those letters from Long Beach, 
or that Plebe Christmas leave in Phila- 
delphia gave him the necessary con- 
fidence; but the fact remains that he has 
it, and with it has made his mark — in 
spite of the fact that the anchor sections 
knew him well. Never a man to let 
books interfere with his education, he 
has learned much about many things. 

Quiet, as a rule, but on occasion has all 
the boisterousness of a twelve-inch projec- 
tile at muzzle velocity. Canny, depend- 
able, and a good judge of beauty, music 
and drinking water.

"Dick" "Best, Aye Aye" 

East Orange, New Jersey 

WHEN Dame Fortune frowned upon 
our Dick, the Army lost a potential 
"shavetail" and the Navy garnered an 
embryo Admiral. Since 14 June, 1928, 
his classmates, as well as others, have dis- 
covered that to engage in an argument 
with him is more than useless. What 
could anyone do against such a vehement 
verbal tirade of facts, figures, and what 
not, presented with such a conviction as 
to render a retort ineffectual. Being a 
savoir "au natural," Dick was inclined 
to belittle his academic abilities in favor 
of improving the cultural rather than the 
technical phase of his career. His 
methods of boning were uncanny — a mere 
glance at printed matter, a flash of 
the sketches, and the dope was his. Then 
followed direful moments for his wives. 
His playing of the Victrola with a study 
hour hook-up, inane remarks, puns, and 
other capricious actions were the bane of 
their existence. "What, no mail?" 
"Where's my paper?" "Anybody want 
anything at the store?" "Who let the vie 
run down?" (and so far, far into the 


"E. K." "Kent" 

Huntington, West Va. 

Behold, one and all, the above noble 
physiognomy with its beatific ex- 
pression and crown of curls (God's gift 
to struggling young manhood) . 'Tis 
none other than that of our Kent, a fine 
southern gentleman, who spent his 
adolescent period gathering specific data 
on the coal industry in the primeval 
haunts of West by — Virginia. 

For E. K. the sailing of the uncharted 
seas of Academics held no real dangers. 
Now and then a nasty squall off the 
Spanish coast strained his rigging but by 
skilfully observing the danger angle he 
managed to keep clear of the rocks and 
to gain deep water with his lee rail only 
slightly awash. 

Kent's magnetic personality and readi- 
ness to help have ensconced him in the 
hearts of all who know him. Integrity 
and justice make him a man of no 
mean character and, in due course of 
time, we hope to hear great things of 
him in the Fleet. Certain it is that 
here is a friend whose memory we will 
ever treasure and we hate to acknowledge 
the parting of the ways. We pay our one 
and lasting tribute — a real shipmate.

"Effie" "Freddie" 

At Large 

Clothes make the man — to be ex- 
perienced and Cosmopolitan; those 
are his maxims. Atlantic City lost, just 
as the Navy gained, when Effie's love 
for the life of a sailor led him to enter 
the service of Neptune and the Naval 
Academy. Freddie arrived with a list 
to port, a slight trim by the stern, and a 
good humor, acquired, we know not 

He captained the sub-squad for three 
years, and his efforts on the gridiron were 
ever disturbed by misadventure and ill- 
luck, but not so his conquests of the so-call- 
ed weaker sex. There, to him, a conquest 
meant victory, and victories there were 
many in his search for the one girl. 

Academically, Freddie is "easy-going" 
though ever at a great distance from the 
dividing line, and he has proved con- 
clusively that a Dutchman can also speak 

He is quick to make friends, and we 
are sure that Effie as a naval officer will 
well represent the world's finest service.

"Bud" "Spud" 

Lacoochee, Florida 

Even though he was born in the 
shadow of the Statue of Liberty, his 
dad an officer in the armies of the United 
States, Bud found himself ensconced in ye 
olde Bancroft Hall one afternoon in mid- 
June, 1928. Once established, he be- 
came a platoon leader and an M. P. O. in 
turn; but the worries and toils of the 
summer, although they failed to turn his 
hair gray, gave to the regiment that dis- 
cordant and disconcerting rumble that was 
wont to issue from the "Hell Cats." 

A year's indoctrination, and he was 
ready for anything; so when the cruise 
reached the continent that young cyclone 
cutting the wide swath up the land could 
easily be traced to that disorganizer of 
men, C. Shearer. A letter from Eng- 
land, from Spain, and once, as current 
rumor has it, from Russia, lay bare a trail 
of broken hearts. An easy air and a 
gracious smile still do it in Crabtown ; 
so be warned ; praemonitus, praemunitus. 

A savoir, a snake, and the best ship- 
mate out of Davy Jones' Locker. Here's 
to an equally pleasant cruise for you in 
the Fleet.

"John" "J. J." "Jo-Jo" 

Bloomington, III. 

It was with a firm and mighty resolve 
that John wended his determined way 
from a far inland province to the birth- 
place of briny careers. That was back 
in the days when Thirty-two was arriv- 
ing by small and self-conscious incre- 
ments at Sick Quarters for the first nerve- 
racking physical. The years that have 
elapsed since his entrance have only 
served to strengthen John's resolve, which 
was, apparently, to work. Thus were the 
academics defeated before even the con- 
test was begun. 

Of course, it is reasonable to conclude 
that under these circumstances John could 
have little if any time for the fairer sex, 
more or less. But since history has dis- 
proved the existence of any definite re- 
lation between academical standing and 
snakish propensities, it will be safer to 
stand upon the firm foundations of the 
whole truth, by telling it. 

Anyone who knows John well will pre- 
dict for him a long, spotless, and efficient 
career in the Navy if he chooses to remain 
in the service. 


"C. P." "Phil" "Nels" 

Bismarck, North Dakota 

Although North Dakota lacks scenic 
and natural beauty, it redeems itself 
by producing good men, and remarkable 
weather phenomena. Without blushing, 
Phil gives proof of the latter, and this 
at great length and in most vivid detail. 
Proof of the former point is substanti- 
ated by Phil's abilities and accomplish- 
ments. In a scholastic way, Phil has con- 
sistently stood high, showing in his work 
an inventive nature and a comprehensive 
understanding of mathematical processes. 
Not satisfied with the material in the 
text, Phil often shows how some device 
might be changed to perfect the working 
of the whole, or how an entirely dif- 
ferent principle might be utilized. In 
an athletic way, Phil has, likewise, proved 
his worth by the oar he has pulled. To 
pull lustily one night is not hard; to pull 
hard every night requires real stamina 
—but Phil has it. 

In all, Phil's ability makes him capable 
of undertaking increasingly greater re-

"Abe" "Fritz" 

Oak Park. Illinois 

This lad is a combination of many 
characteristics and moods. Abe showed 
us from the beginning that he was a seri- 
ous thinker and a scholar. A love of good 
books and music keeps him occupied in 
the few idle hours that creep into his ac- 
tive life. 

He has a strong liking for water. He 
likes nothing better than to sail or to 
swim, and he has spent many pleasant 
hours doing both. Plebe year saw him as 
a member of the "Suicide Club," and 
first and second years saw him on the 
swimming squad. 

Our Abe is not what you might term 
a "snake" nor is he by any means a "Red 
Mike." The steadying influence of the 
O. A. O. at home early determined his 
course along these lines. 

Usually solemn-minded, possessing a 
keen sense of humor when the occasion 
demands, and always at ease under divers 
conditions, Fritz is able to exact the ut- 
most from his Navy life. We hope that 
Dame Fortune will continue to smile 
upon him, and here's wishing old Abe 
the best of luck both afloat and ashore.

"Will" "Jolly" 

Okeechobee, Florida 

Born with the spirit of restlessness, 
Will decided that the life of a civil- 
ian would be altogether distasteful. He 
heard the echo of the Navy's call and de- 
cided to find the source of the noise. 

Will has the ability to make friends 
wherever he goes. He is never bothered by 
life's irritating details. Neither an optimist 
nor a pessimist, he takes fortune's gifts, 
both good and bad, with the same cheer- 
ful smile. 

"Shipshape" is his byword. With this 
motto he has always been able to accom- 
plish his ends, giving just the right 
amount of effort to each task. 

He is a professional pipe smoker. 
Instead of the famous "Cosmo" he en- 
joys "Popular Science." A good pipe, 
a "Popular Science," some spare time, 
and he is happy. His afternoons have 
not been wasted. Besides athletics, he 
has always enjoyed tinkering with a few 
tools and any odd pieces of material that 
happened to be handy. 

A keen sense of humor, a practical 
mind, and a darned good friend — that's

"Bull" "Sonny" "A Squared" 
Waupaca, Wisconsin 

Bull hails from Wisconsin although in 
his less sober moments he sometimes 
confides that Chicago was the city of his 
origin. This fact coupled with a wild 
spirit of adventure accounts for his 
presence in the Navy. This aforemen- 
tioned craving for adventure has often led 
our Bull into what less fearless ones 
might call narrow squeaks. While his 
escapades are many, few are privileged 
to hear of them, as he is not a proponent 
of the first person. 

Plebe Year nearly spelled finish as the 
Ac-Departments gained what seemed to 
be an unbreakable hold. However, the 
agonies of an unsat Christmas leave 
worked wonders and the end of the term 
found him sat, "without velvet." Exams 
hold no fear for him as he believes a 
book or a magazine is the best prepara- 
tion for the worst of them. 

Bull's friendly nature and ready smile 
make him not only a good friend but 
also an ideal shipmate with whom we can 
look forward to having many pleasant 


"Mike" "Bugs" 

Baker, Oregon 

Behold a little Irish rose born in the 
mountains of Oregon where the 
woodbine twineth and . 

The Navy's call reached even to this 
far country and Our Mike heeding this 
call pulled his stakes and forthwith came 
to be one of "the spoiled and pampered 
pets." Early in his career here at the 
school of future admirals he showed his 
ability to succumb to the arms of 
Morpheus. "Oh, gosh, I am tired." 
Then Mike starts the most uncalled-for 
of melodies. This horizontal drill does 
not seem to cause him any worry as far 
as the "Acs" go, as he always manages 
to stay sat. 

He loves to swim, a fact which made 
him a contender for high honors on the 
sub-squad for three successive years. 

Mike is an ideal wife, being argumenta- 
tive, ornery and without the borrowing 
habit. At least this last has not grown 
upon him. 

A good shipmate and a fine friend, 
may his career in the service be the great- 
est of successes.

"Hairbreath" "Emit" 

Hannibal, New York 

HARRIS derived his nickname from that 
famous sleuth, Hairbreath Harry. 
Not that he was a crime investigator but 
that the title seemed quite appropriate for 
his cognomen. 

Early he became interested in elec- 
tricity. After a year of night school at 
Carnegie Tech and a couple more years 
at the Westinghouse East Pittsburgh plant 
he became so bold as to decide to try to 
help Uncle Sam. 

And so he became one of the Pampered 
Pets. Sad to say, Hairbreath had some 
death struggles with Dago. One memo- 
rable day he was at a Spanish class. The 
instructor tried in vain to decipher Hair- 
breath's vocabulary and finally exclaimed, 
"You haven't got the Lock but you surely 
got the Wood." After things like this 
he would try all the harder. 

In practical "juice" he is a savoir. 
When the fellows didn't know how to 
make the things work Hairbreath always 
seemed to know how to show them. He 
is always willing to do his part and do 
it well. We hope that he will always 
be shipmates with us. 


"Hank" "Oscar" "Klink" 

Joplin, Missouri 

Henry hails from the middle west. 
He has a charming personality and 
is welcomed by everyone. 

He possesses the ability of applying 
himself. Studies do not faze him; of 
them he most enjoys math. He is al- 
ways ready to lend a helping hand to 
those who seek assistance and advice. 
He can always produce money from mys- 
terious places to lend the destitutes. 

When an extra hand is needed for a 
card game, Hank is right on hand. He 
is an expert rifleman and can hold his 
own with any man. He has that pleas- 
ing way of doing things that will never 
be forgotten by those who meet him. 
Looking into the future, I can see great 
attainments which will be carried on by 
no less than our sincere friend, Henry.

"Gene' "Sivede" "Chinch" 

Elmhurst, Illinois 

Swede finished his High School career 
in the middle of the year and after 
working a while he decided that he was 
too young to face this cruel world alone. 
Therefore, he decided to join the Navy 
and let Uncle Sam worry about 
where his next meal was coming 
from. He went through "Boot" 
training at Great Lakes, and while 
there he conceived the idea of com- 
ing to the Academy and getting into the 
Navy in a big way. After prepping at 
San Diego he came in on the 29th of 
June to begin training for his chosen 

Gene has never had any trouble with 
the Academic Departments. He always 
stayed several jumps ahead with very lit- 
tle effort. He did spend part of his first 
Christmas leave here, though, on account 
of being scored upon by the Department 
of Physical Training. 

Swede has made many lasting friends 
at the Academy, is liked and respected by 
all that know him, and is predicted a 
bright and happy future in the career he 
is about to enter. 


"Hiram" "Webfoot" 

Richton, Mississippi 

After graduating from High School 
and spending a year at Marion Insti- 
tute, Hiram figured that he was all set to 
learn the ways of the Navy; so he jour- 
neyed up to Annapolis to give it a try, 
and it has been one continual try ever 
since. Try to stay sat in Math, and not 
go unsat in Steam. Try to stay in love 
with an O. A. O. in California with a 
townful of Crabs, and Eastport just 
across the bridge. 

He's the most one-way person in the 
world, but that one way is your way most 
of the time. And he thinks nothing of 
calling you everything from A to Z, but 
just let him hear someone else doing it, 
and he will be on them with all fours. 
It took him two years out of the Bayous 
of Mississippi to learn to talk fast 
enough to keep awake. 

The Academics hit him pretty hard, 
but you can't keep a "rebel" down. "Hey, 
when ya gonna translate this Dago? I 
looked up all the words last night." And 
that is just where he will get the jump 
on a lot of us, because he can "look up 
his words" ahead of time.

"ttey, Jim, that's not a radojet injec- 

_n_ tor you're sketching there. Knock 
off those cartoons and get down to study- 
ing or you won't know a damned thing 
about Steam today." 

Jim does two things at once most of the 
time, and one of them is always sketching. 
His sketching paper is rarely anything 
that was originally intended to be covered 
with cartoons; his desk blotter, a juice 
notebook, a protruding cuff, and quite 
often exam papers. His drawings in the 
Log have made him known and liked by 
the whole regiment. His popularity does 
not stop there, however, as is evidenced 
by the number of fan letters from un- 
known readers in the civilian world. 

He does not confine his activities to 
sketching, as any frequenter of the soccer 
field in the fall and the wrestling loft in 
the winter will know. 

Probably his most outstanding eccen- 
tricity is his choice of his branch of the 
Service; Jim has wanted to go into the 
submarines ever since he can remember. 

A keen Irish wit and a ready smile will 
make him popular with his shipmates in 
the Service.

De Land, Florida 

Born and raised a man in the school 
that the land is the safest, Hutch char- 
acteristically decided that it was the sea 
that should be his calling. 

As a Plebe Hutch made a fair bid to 
achieve fame as an athlete, but a natural, 
easy-going indolence turned his attention 
to less strenuous outlets for his talents. 
A love of warmth and comfort soon made 
this protege of the alligator state a con- 
firmed devotee of that far-famed organi- 
zation, the Radiator Club. In this setting 
Hutch has passed his time, working more 
over the academic troubles of others than 
over his own work. 

It can be truly said, whatever Hutch 
set out to do he did with the utmost of 
his ability. Stubborn at times, yet lik- 
able in that stubbornness, he bids fair to 
succeed in that he adheres to the quota- 
tion, "Be willing to change, but first be 
convinced, and thoroughly so." A man 
of his type, good-natured, easy-going, sin- 
cere and thorough, ready to help when 
help is needed, and a firm believer in his 
own convictions, should make a success 
of whatever course he chooses to follow.

"Wig" "Wiggf "Trusty" 

Seattle, Washington 

They couldn't manage to hold on to 
Wig way out there where "Men are 
Men and the ladies like them that way" ; 
so here he is, and still is, in spite of vari- 
ous and sundry difficulties with certain 
things called Academics (of which he 
loves Math best) . He always managed 
(around January time) to give that old 
devil 2.5 a beating. 

Wig has tried his hand at almost 
everything, including a year at the home 
of the "Huskies," a try at "private secre- 
tarying," and fifty hours credit in the 
Naval Air Reserve. 

Snake? Well, we don't know. He 
tells us to put him down as a very red 
Red-Mike. Neverthelees, we still seem to 
remember coming back from many first

of mail but Wig with a letter written in 
a very feminine-looking hand. He tries 
to allay our suspicions by going around 
mooning "I wish I had a girl." We've 
heard it before. He won't admit he's 
hard hit. 

Wig makes friends easier than anyone

"Brute" "Red" 

Bridgeport, Connecticut 

Beans, Coolidge, and Brute all came 
from New England. His stature is 
small; but what he lacks in that respect 
he makes up in mind and spirit. 

Tecumseh almost caught him Plebe 
year, but Red took warning and from 
then on the old Warrior lost sight of him. 

Brute has tried his hand at many 
things, but he confines his activities to 
tennis, crew and sailing. He likes noth- 
ing better than to go cruising up and 
down the Severn seated in the stern sheets 
of his "galley," or sailing over the Bay 
in some sailboat, with the tiller in his 
hand, and the salt spray in his face. Ap- 
parently, ships are as close as Red ever 
comes to a "she," but occasionally he 
weakens and joins the struggling throng 
at Dahlgren. 

He is a gentleman. With experience 
he will become a capable mariner. In 
short, Time will make him the finished 
Naval Officer. May the Service recognize 
its gain.

Hey! Got a skag? Steady everybody,

His bulldog determination to succeed

lets up until it is done, and done well. 

"Still water runs deep" and so it is

"Bill" "Archie" 

Coronado, California 

Being a navy junior by birth, and a 
candidate from Severn by luck (?), 
this youth entered our school for pamper- 
ed pets a little wiser in the ways of the 
navy than most of us. Maybe that is the 
reason that his name burst into print so 
promptly, and so it has been doing more 
or less ever since, he and the Executive 
Department playing tag each year, some- 
times he being "it" and sometimes not. 

No one could even call him a snake and 
get by with it. True, there was a memo- 
rable ride along the Strand at moonlight 
and that will help out in an emergency; 
but that's all the records show. 

As for activities, he is very fond of 
the security of the Radiator Club, with a 
little radio work on the side. At letter 
writing he excels, and rare indeed is the 
day when he fails to write at least one. 
In spite of these activities he has, how- 
ever, taken an active interest in class

Canton, Mississippi 

Although born in Colorado, "Cattle" 
by reason of ancestry and upbring- 
ing should be rightly called a Mississip- 
pian, for it was the little town of Canton 
in that state that saw most of his boy- 

Nineteen summers rested easily upon 
his head when he joined the Navy with 
us in that memorable summer in 1928. 
Four years of joy and suffering have not 
materially added to that weight. 

In the course of time we were duly im- 
pressed with those latent literary talents 
which were later to take finished form 
in the Lucky Bag and Trident. 

While not especially athletically in- 
clined he found time to manage a victori- 
ous second-class team in the fall of '31 
and spend many a spring and summer 
afternoon with us on the tennis court. 

Having firmly established himself in 
our hearts during these four years, it is 
without trepidation, that we prophesy the 
extension of his admirers to embrace the 
officers of the fleet with whom he will 
come in contact. 

Success has crowned his efforts here as 
we know it will in the Service.

"Beetle" "J. P." "Johnny" 

Paris, Texas 

The mighty winds sweeping eastward 
from the Rockies over Texas and 
Oklahoma found a youth in Paris, Texas, 
who after nineteen years of stubborn re- 
sistance to this driving force was swept 
up to us at the Naval Academy and on 
unto the sea. 

Although usually full of spirit and fun, 
he is capable of intensive and unremit- 
ting effort in the direction of his desires. 

Literally and figuratively speaking, he 
is versatile in sports. As a devotee of 
football for four seasons and crew for 
two he filled the interim in the gym. 

These activities did not, however, 
overshadow his less strenuous propensi- 
ties. Many a young lady will testify as 
to his ballroom prowess and ability to en- 
liven a drawing room conversation. While 
not a self -admitted snake, there are those 
who might go as far as to say that he has 
never dragged a brick willingly nor did he 
ever show the slightest hesitancy in 
dragging a forty. 

Here he has given sound proof that 
the Academy's loss will be the fleet's gain.

"Barney" "Ed" "Izzy" 

Washington, D. C. 

The tow-haired boy is another example 
of our men without a country. He 
hails from that section of our country 
generally known as Washington, D. C. 
And, therefore, forfeits all rights to 
partisanship in titanic "rebel" arguments. 

Barney, the record shows, has found 
himself oftentimes being weighed in the 
balance of the academic departments and 
found not wanting, but sometimes by the 
merest scratch. They have been baying 
at his trail at every turn, but since the 
burial of Math (?) he has valiantly 
shaken them off. 

Being unsat with the academic and 
executive departments, while for the mo- 
ment vexatious, has not altered this care- 
free boy's happy nature. In fact that is his 
dominating characteristic: to look upon 
nothing but the sunny side of life. Week- 
ends and hops find him bubbling over 
with happiness over a new find or a re- 
curring old find. 

Barney is as stout-hearted a fellow as 
ever won the esteem of his classmates.

"Sid" "Sigma" 

Grand Rapids, Michigan 

Grand Rapids, Great Lakes, U. S. S. 
Maryland, San Diego, Annapolis — 
thus reads the itinerary of the cruise 
(1926-1928) that brought Sid to the 
Naval Academy. By means of his un- 
tiring and capable efforts, his keen mind, 
and his extraordinary memory, he rose 
rapidly from the "bottom" of the Service 
up to one of the highest standing mem- 
bers of his class. 

Academically a four-year star man, 
Sigma was always willing to share his 
knowledge and to aid those who came to 
him for information or help. Although 
he found much time for books and 
"Cosmo," studying always came first. 
Somewhat enviously we pay him this trib- 
ute — he knew how to study. 

One of Sid's chief diversions after 
plebe year, when he earned his numerals 
as a member of the gym team, was the 
piano and his music. 

In our associations with Sid we have 
admired him for his straightforward, 
unbiased, frank opinions and criticisms, 
and for his wit. He is a man of ability 
and energy — a gentleman.

"Burl" "B. L." 

Ludington, Michigan 

From the fair state where "the whisper 
of the forest tree, the thunder of the 
inland sea, unite in one grand symphony" 
came a tall, dark-haired lad seeking new 
fields to conquer. Born and raised with- 
in sight of the sparkling blue of Lake 
Michigan, it is not surprising that he 
acquired a fondness for the strenuous 
life of a seaman. 

During his years at the Academy his 
love for the water became almost an 
obsession. Plebe year it was crew, but 
not content with being merely on the 
water he had to get in it as well; so he 
joined the w.k. Suicide Club. 

Studies held no terrors for him, nor 
did he regard them with the rabid eye 
of a "savoir." 

And f emmes ? Why, this rosy-cheeked 
youth had to beat 'em off with a club. 
But he couldn't hold out forever and soon 
became the snakiest of snakes. 

His aptitude for detail and keen mind, 
sharpened by always keeping physically 
fit, coupled with that conscientiousness 
born only from a true love for the sea, 
are qualities which are sure to make of 
Burl a splendid officer.

"Bob" "Cerveza" 

Genoa, Nebraska 

Like Columbus, Bob's home port was 
Genoa (Nebraska, not Italy), but 
Columbus beat him to the job of discover- 
ing America. Therefore Bob decided to 
try something at which Columbus didn't 
have a chance and so left the rolling 
plains for the restless seas. 

Academics never worried this lanky son 
of Nebraska, for, by hard work judicious- 
ly put forth, he has managed to stay sev- 
eral jumps ahead of all departments 
when leave was near at hand. When 
someone else growled about a tough 
exam, he was frequently heard saying, 
"That? Why, that's fruit!" 

The high jump interested him and ef- 
forts along this line have scored points 
for his Alma Mater and earned awards 
for him ever since he entered the 
Academy. He could hardly be called a 
Red Mike, but he very seldom dragged, 
except to help a stranded roommate. 

After four years of living with him 
and his ready smile, it requires no wiz- 
ard to see that wherever he is and what- 
ever he does, those 1 with whom he will 
be associated will find him ready to meet 
them halfway in work and in play. 


"Horace" "Steamer" "Skipper" 
Headland, Alabama 

Hailing from Alabama, Horace lives 
up to all the tradition of the South. 
Truly, he needs no act of Congress to be 
called a gentleman; and as an officer, we 
feel he will be one of the best. Courteous 
and considerate at all times, his friends 
have steadily increased since his initiation 
into the Navy, Plebe summer. 

His small stature did not prevent him 
from making his mark in Navy's athletic 
annals. As coxswain, he was an all-im- 
portant cog in the machinery of the light- 
weight crew. His endeavors along the 
crew line were not restricted to the 
Academy. Homesick for a shell, while 
on Youngster cruise, he visited a boat 
club in Naples, and the ensuing incidents 
will undoubtedly never be forgotten by 
the Neapolitans. A welcome addition to 
a party at the Academy, we have not a 
doubt that his future days, afloat and 
ashore, will be filled with friends, hap- 
piness and success.

Washington, D. C. 

While still in High School, dreams 
of gold lace, three-star barges, 
tropical breezes, heaving decks and beauti- 
ful women pervaded the mind of our 
Bobby, and after four years he still 
dreams of the beautiful women. Blessed 
with a sunny disposition and a sunny 
smile, he has managed to sail peacefully 
through four years and in those years to 
make more friends than any man we 

In the dragging line he can always 
accommodate a friend or two and drag 
cold 4.0's for them. Girls, however, 
are the least of his worries. Academics 
come easy, and few and far between are 
the times that Bobby has found his mark 
for the week posted on the well-known 
(to the rest of us) trees. 

His greatest diversion is chewing the 
rag, so to speak, which he has ably done 
for four years as crew coxswain; his 
greatest aspersion — "Anybody got a skag? 
The Juice lesson is fruit." Wherever he 
goes, we'll wish that luck may follow 
him, and whatever he does, you can bet 
it will be something to be proud of.

"Nitwit" "John" "Neewab" 

Decatur, Georgia 

Georgia is famous for many things, 
and, according to John, rightly so. 
However, after two years at Georgia 
Tech he decided that the Navy was just 
the place for him, and he was right, for 
with his good-natured disposition, which 
often belies his true seriousness, he can 
make the best of any tough situations 
that may come his way. 

While he hasn't worn any stars on his 
collar, the Academic Departments haven't 
caused him an excess of worry, because a 
little early velvet always was able to carry 
him through any ensuing difficulties. In 
the late afternoons, John has divided his 
time between managing soccer, and col- 
lecting and arranging bits of humor for 
the Log. In his spare moments he by 
no means took a back seat when a bull 
session got under way. He could argue 
either way, it didn't matter, as a subject 
was all that was necessary. 

The Femmes certainly got their share 
of his attentions, for no one's locker was 
quite so replete with pictures. But here, 
as in anything — "one will always stand 
out." Our best wishes and sincerest hopes 
for the future go with him.

"Jack" "Irv" "Jellhoe" 

Yuma, Arizona 

Four years ago there came to Bancroft 
on the Severn a boy from the great 
desert spaces of Arizona. He has never 
yet explained his real reason for the 
change in locality, but it must have been 
his desire to see a bit of water mixed 
with the sand. 

Once, in his early youth, he heard a 
doctor say that every growing lad should 
have at least twelve hours of sleep each 
day, so Jellicoe has followed this advice 
carefully and faithfully, and it is no 
strange sight to see him stretched out 
during study hours to catch a few winks. 

Early in youngster year he met the 
lady of his heart, and since that time he 
has used his recreation periods for drag- 
ging. However, he has managed to find 
time to devote to the art of pole vaulting. 

When graduation rolls around and 
everyone is scattered, countless fellows 
will miss that familiar old cry, "What's 
the juice lesson?" uttered, usually as 
formation busts, by our ambitious boy 
trying to make good in a "crool woild." 
All in all he's a pretty good fellow and 
will win a name for himself some day, 
somehow, somewhere.

Blairsville, Pa. 

"F\ oc ' Wilson began his official so-

Academy on a hot day in June, 1928. He 
brought with him from the home podunk, 
Blairsville, Pa., many memories of 
"collitch days" spent in Carnegie Tech; 
but he soon forgot them under the press- 
ing demands of "oars get thee out and 
pull" and other plebe summer drills. He 
was a welcome addition to the ever-swell- 
ing company of "Wensylwania Wolun- 
teers," for as a bridge shark he was much 
in demand. 

Academics held no terrors for him ex- 
cept the Dago department and occasion- 
ally steam. In both of these it was al- 
ways a "Hard winter." His familiarity 
with dx's and dy's, and other forms of 
torture known as math, made him first 
section leader most of the time and held 
his class standing high. 

R. M. is also a mighty swimmer. Three 
years on the sub-squad have made him

dry, and his friends have rewarded his 
untiring zeal with a little tin fish.

Hannibal, Missouri 

'^T^ROM the Mississippi to the Sea." 

_T Snatched from the shores of the 
ole Mississippi, Sarge was hurled into 
the labyrinth of Bancroft Hall. 

Mark Twain's stamping ground of 
Hannibal, Missouri, was the Childe 
Harolde's home. And, needless to say, 
the homefolk are proud of their illustri- 
ous son who went East and made good. 
For he did make good! Not a star 
man but a pleasant sort of student to 
work with; grasps new things readily, 
and will explain them. 

A wide and varied reading has kept 
him abreast of the times, and has cast to 
oblivion a plebe-year nickname. Once 
a year he breaks out the sax, and gives 
an outlet to the music in his soul by play- 
ing in the Musical Club orchestras. 

Modest and unassuming are two intrin- 
sic traits that have made him friends 
here and will continue doing so. I 
prophesy an inevitable success. 


"Mel" "Umptie" "Bismarck" 

Clarendon, Virginia 

Merely a plebe, his qualities were 
recognized by the appellation, Bis- 
marck. A big man, he had the ability 
to look beyond our horizons and the 
fortitude to obtain his objective. Bis- 
marck, the diplomat, autocratic and un- 
compromising, was soon overcome, how- 
ever, by the friend Umptie. 

Off to a bad start with an injured 
knee, the rest apparently gave him the 
impetus, not only to overtake, but to out- 
strip the best of us. What he has at- 
tained is not due to breaks but to good 
old-fashioned plugging. 

He has many likes but each is subject 
to his will with the exception of crew. 
Interested in all sports and accomplished 
in many, he resolved early to specialize; 
and crew received his illimitable energy 
with mutual advantage. 

Never pessimistic, angry, or discourag- 
ed, he lightens one's troubles when their 
weight becomes oppressive. An ideal 
roommate, he will make a good ship-

"Bill" "Grove" "Smut" 

Huntington, W. Va. 

HE is a native of nowhere, none too 
ambitious to set the world aflame with 
his own ingenuity, yet not averse to work- 
ing when the occasion demands. "Bill," 
when in his late 'teens, came skidding 
into the Navy merely because Congress 
had an extra appointment. Since then 
he has found a firmer footing, has rolled 
back the dismal clouds of ignorance, and 
has allowed the bright rays of the "Ac" 
Departments to show him the way to 
graduate in four years. He has learned 
much and has forgotten some of it, but 
most of all he has remembered not to tell 
all that he knows, and nothing that he 
doesn't know. 

"Bill" is a true worshiper at the shrine 
of Venus and Bacchus. 

He is an artist of note, a poet of merit 
and a musician for pleasure. When the 
orchestra needed a bass "fiddler," "Bill" 
mastered this little instrument. 

A pal in necessity as well as foolish- 
ness, makes "Bill" a shipmate to be re- 
spected and well liked. 


"Ike" "Ikey" "Horsey" 

Rupert, Idaho 

After two years at the University of

bitions. No sooner thought than done, 
and we find our "Hobbyhorse" riding 
through social activities both at the 
Academy and in the environs with the 
nonchalance of a born Beau Brummel. 
His social ladder lacks a top rung, and 
we feel that in time his name will grace 
the annals of cigarette papers, as does his 
predecessor's, Lord Chesterfield. 

Having wrestled for two years at the 
"U" before entering the Navy, "Ike" was 
left only one year to participate in Inter- 
collegiate competition. Had this not been 
the case, we are certain the team would 
have found an invaluable captain in this 
"Sandblower." Whether up or down, his 
disposition is always jovial. His wit is 
inspired, and when it is coupled with his 
friendly attitude we need search no fur- 
ther for a real pal.

"Gus" "Cowboy" "Kas" 

Odei.l, Nebraska 

Away out in the wilds of Nebraska, 
our big, handsome Bohemian first 
decided to cast his lot with "those who 
go down to the sea in ships" and came 
barging into Crabtown late one day in 
June, 1928. Since then we've watched 
his progress from a lowly plebe to a 
venerable first classman. 

Gus is naturally fickle, no one girl ever 
having been able to hold his attention 
for more than a month. Witness, Second 
Class summer when he had six O. A. O.'s 
in three months. He is not a snake, but 
when he drags you can look for a 4.0. 

Though not a star man, "Cowboy" 
stands high enough in his class to be as- 
sured of a commission in the "Gyrenes," 
a lifelong ambition. 

A good nature, a keen sense of humor, 
and a cheerful disposition are bound 
to make a lot of friends for "Gus," no 
matter where he is — in the Marine Corps 
or digging ditches. And, no matter where

and a lot of enthusiasm and the result 
was his first "sea-goin' " craft. The 
strain never grew foreign to his blood 
and Smiley entered Marion Institute with 
the intention of entering the Naval 

This came to pass and Smiley awoke 
one morning to have somebody tell him 
that "damn Yankee" was two words. 
Here was pure heresy in Clare's estima- 

As an athlete, his attention has 
been riveted on class football and water- 
polo. During Plebe year, it was feared 
that Smiley would develop gills in place 
of lungs, so ardent was his attempt to 
win a berth on the suicide squad. 

Clare is temperamentally suited for the 
life of a Naval Officer. He is savvy, re- 
fuses to worry over trifles, and thrives 
on the unusual. Ask any of his class- 
mates about the time he went to break- 
fast formation without a collar and tie.

tennis didn't have to be thrown into the

Cli>ff spent one year at the University

not just another Lewis, but a real tribute 
to the clan, rating with Strangler, J.

commonsense, and nimble wit have won 
him innumerable friends both here and 
on the outside. Steve left Northwestern

kept him from becoming varsity material

john ioseph Mccormick 

"Mac" "Jig Jig" 

Barnesboro. Penn. 

John Joseph McCormick establish- 
ed a record the day he entered the 
Naval Academy. He was the first man 
from Barnesboro, Pennsylvania, to enter 
in many moons. Since that eventful day 
he has fought right valiantly to be worthy 
of Barnesboro's wild enthusiasm. 

Despite academics, John has found 
time for other activities. His first at- 
tempt was boxing. This sport was given 
up, however, because he decided it was 
too easy — too easy to get cauliflower ears 
and hard blows on the chin. Since giv- 
ing up boxing he has pitched for the com- 
pany baseball team, played center on the 
company football team, and has been in 
the second "fifties" for two seasons. 

His greatest assets, however, are his 
cheery spirit and good nature. Because 
of them he has been a good classmate 
and will be an excellent officer when it is 
his turn to go out in the fleet. There, 
no doubt, he will make many friends and 
will continue to be an asset to the serv- 


"Micky" "Tuolumne" 

Tuolumne. California 

How "Tuolumne" ever managed to 
break away from Paradise, or Cali- 
fornia, which is next to it, is a wonder. 
But he did, and became resigned to live 
for four years away from his beloved 
state and made the best of Maryland. 
Much to his surprise it wasn't such a 
bad place after all. 

An injury early in Plebe year put an 
end to his athletic hopes, forcing him to 
concentrate his physical efforts at com- 
pany sports. Company rifle competition 
is his specialty. 

Micky is not what one would call 
savvy, but by dint of hard and con- 
tinuous study and an excellent start from 
Summerville Union High, back in Tuo- 
lumne, he has raised himself to a place 
among the ranking men of the class. 

He is occasionally seen dragging, 
though he seldom goes to hops or in- 
formals. From the prominent place on 
his desk occupied by the picture of a 
beautiful girl with dreamy eyes and a 
wistful smile, we think he must be in 
love. And didn't we see a miniature on 
his desk some time during second class 
year? Congratulations, Micky!

"Moonbeam" "Rex" 

Lyndon, Kansas 

Almost immediately upon his arrival 
Rex became famous, or rather noto- 
rious, through his deadly accuracy with 
the firehose and was ever and anon seen 
leading his comrades forth in a daring 
charge in the wee small hours of some 
Plebe Summer morning. When ques- 
tioned about his ability he replied de- 
murely that he had belonged to the 
championship fire brigade of Osage 

He soon put away childish things, how- 
ever, and began seriously to study his 
chosen profession. He was inveigled into 
the thankless job of Plebe roustabout for 
the Masqueraders. His services being 
found indispensable, he continued the 
work and was finally made Business Man- 
ager first class year. 

Rex has profited by his stay at the 
Naval Academy. Quiet, good natured, 
with a heart as big as all outdoors, he 
has made more lasting friendships in 
four years than most men in a lifetime. 
May his career as a naval officer be long 
and pleasant. 


"Mart" "Matt" "Koivie" 

Ishpeming, Michigan 

Mart came to us after a year at the 
University of Michigan and conse- 
quently wasn't quite as befuddled as 
most of us were Plebe year. In fact he 
has never had any trouble with academics 
while in the Academy. 

Nothing said about Koivie would be 
complete unless his inimitable sense of 
humor were mentioned. It keeps one 
rolling with laughter one moment and 
seeking a belaying pin the next. 

Mart has tried most sports and is for- 
ever taking a workout; but while no con- 
spicuous athlete, he has faithfully sup- 
ported the sub-squad for three years. 

Koivie has gathered a host of friends 
who will always remember him for his 
sparkling wit, perpetual good humor, 
thoughtfulness, and willingness to help 
out a friend any time. And as a room- 
mate, there are no better. 

"Aw, this isn't cold; you should see

"Dog" "Fletcb" "Daril" 

San Antonio, Texas 

The thump of a chair hitting the deck 
and the excited rustling of a news- 
paper is heard. "Here it is, boys, here 
it is; right in the center section: 'Come 
to San Antone, where the sun spends the 
winter!' ' And the tall "wife" is off on 
another of his famous stories about Texas 
and how things are done there. "Diesie 
F. Dog Dan'l Fletcher, Jr.," having been 
in Galveston once, first answered the call 
of the sea in 1927. His struggle with 
the Steam Department was a vain one 
that year, but he came back with our class 
and has stood on the winning side of a 
2.5 ever since. 

"Dog" is the embodiment of the 
fabled Texan, six foot two, lean and 
rangy, possessing that sun-cured color and 
outthrust chin. He is also the owner of 
a polished, gallant Southern manner and 
a drawl to go with it. 

We predict great things for "Fletch" 
in the future — for who could ask for a 
better shipmate? His tales will make 
history in some ward-room, and even as 
an Admiral he will have new ones to tell 
of San Antone. 


"Jack" "Roudy" "Flatbush" 

Glendale. California 

OUT in Glendale, California, winner 
of innumerable Rose Tournaments, 
a young man heard of Uncle Sam's School 
for boys on the banks of the Severn and 
became interested. He soon entered with 
high hopes and determination. 

Jack has retained his original optimism 
and has gone through with the philosophy 
that petty worries make life dull. As a 
result, studies gave him no serious trou- 
ble. One would be led to believe that 
engineering should have been compara- 
tively easy for him considering the fact 
that he has owned and successfully op- 
erated four Model T Fords, Magnolia I 
to IV inclusive, to recall fond memories. 
However, he found the practical side a 
little different from the theoretical. 

Tennis is his hobby, and he has de- 
voted a great deal of his time to the 
sport, along with soccer. His presence 
was felt in both. 

Jack has always had a keen sense of 
humor, that genuine gloom-dispelling 
kind. His cheerfulness made everybody 
with whom he came into contact a friend. 
Here is wishing you continued success 
and happiness.

Here we have weighed him and in the

recognize him by his ability to laugh, his 
readiness to give and take a joke, his fa-

his "What? No mail?" He always did 
dislike the radiator club and its proceed- 
ings. Hence, you could always find him 
engaged in some sport. 

None of us have ever known him to 
have an enemy; all that knew him were 
friends. We know that when he leaves 
us and enters the Service he will carry 
with him all those characteristics that 
have made us like him.

"Tony" "Dropsy" 

Milwaukee, Wisconsin 

" A real representative of the great 

±\_ Northwest — and proud of it." 
Tony also lived near one of the Great 
Lakes where the alluring call took hold, 
and not being able to resist, he decided 
'twas the Navy for him. 

After making several visits to the Great 
Lakes Training Station, he took the 
exam, passed, then shipped for Annapolis, 
and before he knew it had exchanged 
his sporty "cits" for the very comfortable 
white works of a Plebe. Then the fun 
began. It wasn't so long before Plebe 
and Youngster years had passed. He will 
tell you that all in all it wasn't so bad. 

Tony has a hobby of "knowing a little 
about every sport." He made the class 
football team, was out for track, tried 
wrestling, likes to throw a baseball, and 
when he wasn't otherwise occupied you 
could find him working out in the gym. 

Once you know him, you like him.

"Dirk" "Dirkovitch" "Dimie" 

Ashland, Ohio 

"t~virk." immediately came into promi- 
JL/ nence the first time a "pap" was 
read and ever since his life at the Naval 
Academy has been eminent. 

His distinctive features and that im- 
pressive name are entirely in keeping 
with his latent abilities and his person- 
ality. One of the gifted few — his poetry 
many a time filled a page of the Log. 
His omnivorous reading together with 
his knowledge of human nature endowed 
him with a magnetic flow of speech, and 
the priceless faculty of making friends 
easily and retaining them indefinitely. 
Naturally a man so armed is untroubled 
by amorous entanglements. His O-A-O 
is subject to change without notice — an 
indication that having broken a large but 
finite number of hearts and having seen 
enough of the others he will eventually 
cling to the one. 

Because of Dirk's natural sincerity he 
has made a creditable showing in his 
academic work; and in the athletic field 
we find him a boxer and a fencer. He 
is one of the only few to wear that 
big "N."

"Bill" "Caballo" 

Iron Mountain, Michigan 

One look at that innocent face will 
convince you that here is one of 
Nature's children ; and a fuller acquaint- 
ance with the owner will prove your im- 
pressions. A shyness, a flashing grin, a 
bouncing walk, and an idealism that has 
survived the wisecracking of four years' 
association with more cynical classmates 
— these are the things that make Caballo 

The business world lost a potential 
"John D." when Bill came here; for with 
all his ingenuousness, he possesses an un- 
usually acute business mind. At the least 
provocation, he'll use reams of paper 
showing you just how he could make, or 
save, or remanage any particular trans- 
action to a greater profit; and the fact 
that his "amount available" was always a 
maximum proved his theories. 

A shoulder that wouldn't stay put de- 
prived him of the coveted "N," but win- 
ter afternoons usually saw him in the 
gym, climbing ropes and pulling weights 
for the good of his soul. The old call 
"Fall in the sub-n-we-e-ak squads" haunt- 
ed him up until the verge of Second Class 
Christmas leave.

ABIT of quietness, a lot of fun, a bit

laughter, his quick response to help a

participation in any practical joke give 
him welcome wherever he goes and he 
never leaves without adding to his long 
list of friends. 

A good athlete, George's prize posses- 
sion is a pair of dumb-bells. He will 
end a strenuous hour's workout by toss- 
ing one of the steel pests to an unsuspect- 
ing roommate with a whispered warning 
of "catch, catch." Although he excels 
at no one sport, he is adept at all of

U a w, that's fruit; here's how you do

things appear easy. He has more facts 
stored away under his unruly hair than 
any person we've ever run across, and 
what makes him unusual is the fact that 
he knows how to apply them. 

The Academic Departments have never 
given him one minute of trouble and that 
has enabled him to spend four peaceful 
years at the Academy, calmly viewing the 
haste and bustle around him and enliven- 
ing his room with wisecracks that are 
really wise, or otherwise. 

Although never on a varsity team, 
Shendoff has contributed his share to the

and consistent in wrestling and soccer.

Chickamauga, Georgia 

Having tired of a career of wreck- 
ing Fords, selling books, and play- 
ing football in the South, Prince joined 
the Navy. Here his Ford was banished 
and his books took on a new significance, 
but football held all its old appeal. Two 
years of good work promised to develop 
a varsity player, but an injury in the 
third year unfortunately took away the 
last vestige of his old life and kept him 
from the coveted letter. 

He never seems really happy unless he 
is either getting into or out of a scrap, 
but his lack of a line and his sincere at- 
titude always bring him clear and have 
made many genuine friends for him. 

He has never acquired a nickname be- 
cause "Prince" describes him and no one 
has originated one better suited. Good 
natured, savvy, and with a leaning toward 
adventure, Prince will be at home in the

Montgomery, Alabama 

ONE of Pete's greatest ambitions is to 
sleep twenty-four hours a day. Per- 
haps his younger days in sunny, carefree 
Alabama developed this love of Mor- 
pheus, the god of slumber. He has never 
been known to be himself at reveille or 
very soon thereafter. In fact it takes 
until after his morning cup of Java for 
him to get in phase. 

With an unquenchable love of good 
music he has kept the room well supplied 
with new Vic records. Should you enter 
the room some time when only the study 
lamp is lighted and soft strains are com- 
ing from the Vic, it's a cinch that Pete 
is perched alongside it looking out of the 
window into the night and thinking about 
a little girl, a little car, a little home, 
in a little town in Alabama. 

Pete always has a smile for everyone. 
This trait has ever helped him to make 
new friends and hold all his old ones. 
His amiability and whole-hearted gen- 
erosity, which extends to giving one the 
shirt off his back, have made him be- 
loved by all his classmates.

"Red" "Richey" "Dick" 


ROY absorbed all the education that 
Collingswood High School had to 
offer and then began to look around for 
a school with a more difficult course. 
Within a short time he had become a 
Midshipman. By the end of Plebe sum- 
mer Roy was inaugurated into the 
Academy routine and got off to a good 
start in academics. He found little dif- 
ficulty with the course and coasted 
smoothly through four years with little 
worry, and less studying. He is one of 
the few who not only talked of rolling 
up velvet at the beginning of each term 
but actually did so. 

In the fall he is active in company soc-

also assuring himself of a high grease 
mark. Winter finds him busy with the

his afternoons across the Severn with

"Phil" "Snitzel" 

Cincinnati, Ohio 

Until he entered the Academy our 
Plebe Summer Phil was ever a 
"fresh water sailor," having gleaned his 
experience on rainy days in Cincinnati. 
He took well to salt water, however, and 
after a hectic Plebe year he made the 
Youngster cruise and returned a wiser, 
saltier youngster. 

The challenge of academics called up 
Phil's fighting blood, and for the first 
two years it was nip and tuck until the 
end when "Snitzel" got in that little extra 
bit that assured his career. When aca- 
demics grew dull his delight in good com- 
bat took him out to where the "B Squad" 
struggled or to the wrestling loft. 

Through all the trials and tribulations 
of his years here and through his long 
siege in the hospital, Phil's everlasting op- 
timism and good humor have made him 
numerous friends who are his forever. 
Even though sickness keeps him from 
graduating with us, wherever we may be 
Phil's smile and cheerful words will 
always be welcome.

"Scotty" "Rusty" 

Klamath Falls, Oregon 

Scotty came to us out of the great 
West, completely Oregonized. Plebe 
summer made its usual changes, and as 
a result we've had the pleasure of his 
company for the past four years. Aca- 
demics hold no fear for him, although a 
certain Youngster Math course woke him 
up considerably, and since then he's made 
an enviable record. 

In the line of athletics, his best sport 
is soccer. His stocky build stood him in 
good stead in the center position, and 
few goalies cherished the idea of his 
crashing in to chalk up the needed points. 
Although never an active candidate for 
the gym team, his work on the rope 
climb cannot be overlooked. The length 
of the rope is enough to discourage most 
of us, but when time is a factor the rope 
climb becomes a feat accomplished well 
by few. 

As for his social activities, we know 
very little about them before he entered 
the Academy. Youngster year he stepped 
out in great style, and since then has held 
up his share of the social life. 

Chicago, Illinois 

Dick, a proud son of Chicago, gave 
up ambitions of becoming a cor- 
poration lawyer to obtain a commission 
in the Navy. His optimistic disposition, 
gay abandon at play and seriousness at 
work assured from the first that he would 
always be well liked. 

A little difficulty with "steam" and a 
troublesome ankle kept Dick from earn- 
ing a major award early in his career. 

Dick's inclination toward athletics led 
to some trouble with academics and vice 
versa, but that was to be expected since 
he was never a member of the radiator 
club. He did not spend his time in the 
upper sections, yet he was able to secure 
a place near the first section when neces- 
sary. Since he was neither a number 
jumper nor a wooden man, it is small 
wonder that he was and is popular with 
everyone from first section leader to 
anchor man. 

Few realize how versatile Dick is, but 
it is only necessary to add that among 
other things he is a good musician and a 
real horseman.

"Hutch" "Here" 

Grand Junction, Colorado 

HE joined the Navy — no, not to see 
the world as a sailor — but to be- 
come one of the pampered pets — a mid- 
shipman. And judging from his picture 
and numerous athletic achievements, it is 
a safe bet that he did succeed and attain 
his ambition. 

Medium height, herculean build, a veri- 
table mass of muscle, make him an asset 
to any lacrosse or soccer team. His worth 
in the latter sport was made evident 
when he was given a berth on the Prince- 
ton AU-American Soccer Team. As a 
lacrosse player he is an excellent attack 
man, and many an opponent's body has 
felt the stinging blow of an unintentional 

As a plebe, Hutch caused his first-class 
sea-daddies a great deal of consternation 
by his easy-going, deliberate attitude. But 
this constant factor of nonchalance re- 
mains in his make-up, and has won him 
many friends. 

It is no wonder that Hutch's friends 
are countless, because he combines sin-

a manner that few, if any, are able to

Four years ago Marion sent her best

who know him admire him for his will-

From the very beginning of his life as

From the banks of the dreamy Ma-

"Our Chin" learned all the tricks that he

he didn't learn up there. If there is any- 
thing that you want fixed, phonographs,

have come to the right man. 

However, the Magothy was not the 
only cruising ground for this lad. He 
made several adventurous trips out in the 
Chesapeake, where by chance he saw the 
Naval Academy through a porthole. 

"Well," says John, "I guess I had bet- 
ter investigate." And, lo, we had in our 
midst this versatile athlete. Whether it's 
freebooting the old apple around the 
yard, turning the fish green with envy by 
his swiftness through the water, or run- 
ning around with a gadget that looks 
suspiciously like a tennis racket but is 
used to club guys on the head, we always

"Sarge" wished to learn his profession

"Oscar" "Heinie" 

Butler, Missouri 

IT IS an accepted fact that every or- 
ganization must have its Heinlein. If 
you come in some bright and cheery after- 
noon after a hard workout up the river, 
and find your locker upside down, your 
bed half out the window, footprints on 
the ceiling, and any of many other slight 
departures from the regulation arrange- 
ment of the Midshipmen's Quarters, be 
nonchalant — look for Oscar. If you find 
him, don't forget the old maxim of spare 
the rod and spoil the Heinlein. 

Heinie is very sensitive about some 
things. Plebe year, a first classman having 
an errand to be performed always had to 
convince Oscar that he was not trying to 
run the poor plebe before any results 
were evident. On youngster cruise, Oscar 
was still sensitive. That's why he intends 
to spend his future guarding the streets of 
Heaven's scenes. 

Oscar has often brightened a dull mo- 
ment for all of us. This little ray of 
canned sunshine will be a memory of the 
happy years in Bancroft Hall which few 
of us shall ever forget. We are sure that 
in the future, as soon as Oscar has landed, 
he will have the situation well in hand.

IN a quiet town situated some forty 
miles from Crabtown, Bill first heard

this motive, to emulate "John Paul," Ted 
climbed aboard one of those parlor cars 
for Annapolis early on the morning of 
the thirteenth, and ere the day was done 
William A. Thorn officially appeared on 
the register. 

Bill's lot while with us has been merely 
a continuation of a brilliant career which 
began at Baltimore Poly, and with sur-

distinguish himself on the athletic field 
as well as in the classroom. Track is his

give 'im the works!" and a determined- 
looking lad gets up from the bench, goes 
to the mat, and applies the pressure. Not 
much of a talker, this Max boy, but he 
certainly produces, not only on the wrest- 
ling mat, where he has shown himself 
one of Navy's greatest wrestlers, but in 
his everyday intercourse with his class- 

His attitude shows itself in his 
every action ... on the mat he 
makes no grimaces, strikes no at- 
titudes, but goes in and ties his man 
in more knots than a salty old bos'n 
could fathom. Wrestling, with its 
body-to-body contact, ranks with boxing 
in its capacity for developing the fighting 
man, not the showy type, but the persever- 
ing plugger. In the Service it's the plug- 
ger, the square-shooter, that makes the 
best officer, and we're all expecting Max, 
after he has thrown his last adversary on 
the mat, to continue winning his bouts 
with life in the Service. 


"Al" "La pie" 

Omaha, Nebraska 

A scholar but not a student. After 
getting a Phi Beta Kappa and Kappa 
Beta Phi average at the University of 
Nebraska, this lad joined our ranks late 
in July, Plebe summer. Staying in the 
awkward squad only one day, he was 
the company guide for the rest of the 
summer. The Academic Departments 
never made him dream of hobgoblins, but 
he is one of the advocates of the theory 
that all to be learned is not taught in 
books. His is an understanding nature 
combined with a keen judgment of hu- 
man character. His "Have you got any- 
thing to read?" especially during exam 
week, has caused many a Bowditch to 
burst its bindings on a closed door. 

Lapie was one of the fighting mem- 
bers of the sub-squad for three years, 
and to prove that his athletic abilities 
were not one-sided, he combined with 
Scherini to win the doubles handball 
championship of the Academy. 

Summary: A real pal. Lots of luck,

"Abe" "Abie" 

Portland, Maine 

Abe — not the original Abe, but still 
original in being an old salt from 
Portland, Maine, which he says is the 
best place in the world. He is right, it's 
home to him. 

Quite a fellow — this Abe — stolid as we 
all try to be, likable, and savvy as our 
"ole" friend, the owl. Though not ath- 
letically inclined, he spends a good 
deal of his time keeping the faltering 
fleet-footed sat. Pigskin toters, ham-and- 
eggers, basketeers, or any others, includ- 
ing those inevitable snakes who have not 
time to study — he packs brains into them 
all. Yes, Abe is a savoir even though he 
does not claim that distinction. "I bilged 
another exam, only got a 3.6." 

According to Abe, he is a confirmed 
"Red Mike," but the number of letters he 
receives makes us wonder ? 

Abe seems to be quite successful in all 
his undertakings and when he does go to 
take charge of his submarines we may rest 
assured that he will not fall down — al- 
though he may bump his head. "All I 

ask is a good tall sub ." Good luck, 




Owosso, Michigan 

"ttalt! One-Two! Where are you 

JTj. from, Gadget?" 


"Owasso, what?" 

"Owasso use, sir!" 

It was through George that everyone 
in the class discovered that Owosso really 
did exist, and that most automobiles come 
from Michigan. Every little town has 
some redeeming feature. And that's 
where George comes in. He's really a 
likable fellow. There isn't a thing that 
he wouldn't do for one. When one 
wants to "borrow" a "skag" he gives and 
smiles. Troubles don't seem to faze him ; 
that is, studies don't. 

No great men ever cared much 
about studying. George is no exception 
to the grand old custom. He doesn't 
worry about studies nor does he have 
to. His only burning ambition in 
the line of boning is to know enough 
"dago" to keep his name from the list 
of weekly sacrifices. He has always liked 
French — liked to be through with it. 
But who doesn't? If he doesn't become 
an admiral of the Swiss Navy, at least, 
we'll be disappointed.

La Crosse, Kansas 

A couple of years in college and one 
in the regular Navy gave Harry a 
more mature outlook on life. Out of 
these experiences, he formed a philosophy 
based on maximum accomplishment with 
minimum efforts. Not that Harry is 
averse to work; he is merely a staunch 
upholder of the Law of Conservation of 
Energy. And his system has worked with 
surprising success. For example, in the 
academics, he has nearly always managed 
to star in the first two months of a term 
so he could devote the last two to his 
many other interests. All things have 
had their proper time in this man's well- 
planned curriculum. Whether it was 
garnering up one of high marks for the 
month in Nav, to bolster up the class 
standing, or merely catching up with a 
little lost sleep during drill period, Harry 
managed it with a certain finesse which 
seldom admitted failure. 

Cheerful, good-natured and keenly dis- 
cerning, Harry is always master of the 
situation. There is no reason for wish- 
ing him good luck. If luck doesn't come 
his way, he will succeed without it.

"Muddy" "Dab" 

Manassas, Virginia 

From the site of Bull Run came this 
worthy descendant of the gallant gen- 
tlemen in gray. The phrase, "a scholar 
and a gentleman," aptly describes this 
true Virginian. From the beginning his 
tact, friendliness, and ability have mark- 
ed him as a born leader. 

There are many to whom the cognomen 
of "savoir" can be applied, but here is 
one who fulfills every possible meaning 
of the word. In academics, nothing seems 
to be too difficult for his mind to grasp; 
and his help to his less fortunate fellows 
has been a source of relief to them, and 
has given him a real pleasure in being a 
help. In general knowledge, too, he 
stands among the first, and a remarkably 
astute memory makes him a well of help- 
ful information. 

He is gifted also with a pair of speedy 
feet that have been a material aid to the 
Navy teams. A certain indescribable 
charm and an easy way of saying the right 
thing at the proper time have made him 
as popular among the femmes as any man 
could desire to be.

"Lloyd" "Mustie" "Mustang' 
At Large 

Way back in June, 1928, this fair- 
haired lad came down from Wash- 
ington and took the Naval Academy 
under his special care. You would never 
suspect him of being a Navy Junior, for 
he was a savoir, and, moreover, fair to 
look upon. Those of us who are for- 
tunate enough to really know him mar- 
vel at the man. Such savoir-faire, vir- 
tute non verbis, et cetera, ad infinitum. 

Early in his career, Lloyd realized the 
futility of attempting to elude the 
femmes, so he started meeting them half 
way (in the yard, at the Main Office, or 
out in town), and he slays 'em all with 
a glance and leaves them to languish. 

As early as Plebe Summer, he achieved 
fame as an athlete, and the Natatorium 
was his castle. Each year found him the 
shining light on the Swimming Team, 
breaking records here and there, wind- 
ing up the season with more block Ns. 

Academically, his life was serene — a 
star man in the classroom as well as the 
drawing room, Lloyd will reach the top 
at anything he undertakes, for "It isn't 
luck, it's skill." 


"Bill" "Billy" "Will" "Roe" 
At Large 

Bill came over from Washington, 
where we go when we want to have 
a big leave, and he brought the spirit 
with him. He's our original dynamic 
personality. Week-ends, Carvel, Hops — 
never complete without him. And when 
it comes to absolutely non-aesthetic danc- 
ing, Virginia Beach stuff rates with the 
Ancient Greeks alongside his brand of 
syncopated whoopee. 

It wasn't long after signing in Uncle's 
league before he took to the water, and 
he has been pulling a mean "dorsal 
stroke" ever since. His other athletic 
loves were trips to the rifle and pistol 
galleries in the interest of the company, 
and a shot at track. Maybe training 
table chow helped along his effervescence. 

But the thing he did best of all was 
keep the women apart (practically) . He 
can't claim much of the credit, though — 
it was too easy. Just give the boys a 
look-see, and presto — an army of inter- 
ested, not to say eager, assistants. Oh 
well, 'stough to have taste in that line. 

Long may you wave, Bill.

"Jack" "Garp" "Wintly" 

Pittsburg, Kansas 

Jack had the distinction of being the 
first man in '32 to sign the "Big 
Book," thus receiving the coveted laun- 
dry number "2." He hails from way out 
West in Kansas where men are men and 
women are glad of it, but, nevertheless, 
he upholds the good old Navy line and 
claims, incidentally, to be a buffalo hun- 
ter. Jack's sunny disposition and generous 
ways have made him many friends from 
the first days of Plebe summer right on 
through, with the result that everybody 
knows him and everybody likes him. 

The Acs have never caused him to lose 
either sleep or pounds. He has plenty of 
reserved boning power stored up in case of 
need, but it will be unusual if he ever 
needs it. Just let him put on his glasses 
for you and you can readily see why all 
the people say O. K. 

He has given his bit to athletics in 
both football and in basketball and is a 
member of the reception committee. 

Jack gave up a brilliant future as a 
teacher to cast his lot with us in the Navy. 
He has all of the qualifications of a 
good Naval Officer and is headed for a 
successful career in his chosen profession.

"Spike" "Freddie" 

York, Nebraska 

IT is rather a mean loss to the business 
world to have put Freddie in blue. 
His tendencies have shown him to be 
one "most likely to succeed" when placed 
on his own resources. The factor mak- 
ing his attempts fruitful has not been 
rare bursts of genius of a fertile mind, 
but, more to his credit, a grim, tenacious 
attitude in carrying out the plans where- 
in others have fallen because of fear of 
too strenuous a task. 

Academics do not resist him long. He 
goes out after them with a will to learn. 

Freddie is a follower of the idea oft 
spoken but rarely practiced, "A thing 
worth doing at all is worth doing well." 
Spike guided the football team for three 
years as a managerial mainstay until he 
left to assume the duties of first class. 

Somehow, the older ladies are won 
over when he happens around. It may 
be his cheerful philosophy, or perhaps 
he really enjoys making waffles on Sun- 
day afternoons. An ardent adherent of 
the Terpischorean art, he is always found 
on Saturdays and Sundays delighting 
some few maids with his twinkling toes.

"Red" "Tom" "Tommy" 

Annapolis, Maryland 

Prior to entering the Naval Acad- 
emy Tom spent a happy though 
rather unproductive year at Severn. Dur- 
ing that first eventful summer he dis- 
tinguished himself by his abilities in ath- 
letics and his knowledge of the Academy 

Unlike many who can get from under 
the axe without any special effort, he de- 
cided to star and as a result has been 
sporting one ever since. 

Among the "wooden" there are many 
who are indebted to Red for straightening 
out the snares of academic departments. 

It has almost become a proverb in this 
day and age that athletes are not over- 
bright. However, the Redhead has proved 
himself to be an exception. His first at- 
tempt in football was rather disastrous 
because of lack of weight. However, in 
basketball and especially in lacrosse, 
where weight is not so important, he was 
a valuable addition to the varsity. 

In short, Tom is the sort of fellow 
that you are proud to call a friend. When 
he leaves to join the fleet there will be 
many who wish him the best of luck. 


"Buck" "Jesse" "Jimmy" 

Hyattsville, Maryland 

Living so near the home of the 
Navy, Buck has naturally leaned 
toward the naval life. Opportunity 
knocked and Buckie was not so slow in 
answering. Thus we find him in our 

Jesse is an all-round man. Any- 
thing that he undertakes is well done, 
especially in the athletic line, where, with 
his six feet two of brawn, he finds a 
ready place. In academics, he is not a 
star man, but he is not slow to grasp 
facts. Being a rebel, Buck is inclined to 
be lazy. "What, ten minutes? I can't pos- 
sibly read this over in that time!" In 
addition to his devotion to athletics and 
academics, Jesse still finds time to de- 
vote to the fair sex. He is by no means 
a red mike, and one may always find him 
where a dance is in progress. 

When Buck graduates there will be 
many who will be mighty sorry to see 
him leave. But we rest assured that 
wherever he goes he will fit in. We also 
know that there is one ship in the fleet 
that is going to benefit greatly by his 
presence. So long, Buck, our best wishes 
go with you !

"Alph" "Al" 

Crafton, Pennsylvania 

When "Alph" first dropped in on us 
he had left behind him in Crafton 
an enviable record in athletics, dramatics 
and music. It is quite natural, then, that he 
has done so much along those lines while 
one of Uncle Sam's pampered pets. Al- 
though never quite a headliner, he is al- 
ways found battling with the best in any 
chosen activity. This characteristic also 
shows up in his academics, as he has 
seldom if ever been unsat, because of his 
determination to succeed. 

He is perfectly happy when he is har- 
monizing with some of the boys. In this 
respect, his hearers are also happy, for 
he has a very pleasant tenor voice. 

His chief weakness is an interesting 
habit of bringing some record that has 
caught his fancy around to his friends' 
rooms, saying, "Listen, boys, get a load 
of this number, — it's absolutely the 
smoothest trumpet solo you ever heard!" 

Al has been blessed with a cheerful 
outlook on life and a congenial dispo- 
sition. He is a straightforward, hard- 
working friend and will surely leave his 
mark on his associates. 


"Parson" "Turf 

Meriden, Conn. 

From Meriden, Connecticut, came 
"Parson" back in the early summer 
of '28 — fresh from high school after 
having succeeded in getting that long- 
dreamed-of appointment. Like others 
riding South about the same time, 
he little realized what Plebe year had in 
store. Plebe year was tough for "Par- 
son" both academically and otherwise; 
but that made him emerge a whole lot 
wiser and stronger as is evidenced by the 
way he now "flits" around the savvy sec- 

"Turt" is one who thinks well before 
he leaps, but when he leaps it's a hop, 
skip and jump. "Turt's" even disposi- 
tion and cheery smile are the outward 
manifestations of a warm heart and a 
mind that always sees things ,in their 
proper perspective. 

"Parson" has chosen the Marine Corps 
with its mules and red stripes. Semper 
Fidelis is no new motto for him. All 
those whose ambition is Pensacola and 
a pair of wings may see him soon, as he 
looks forward to wings also.

"Brindy" "Charlie" 

San Francisco, California 

From the beginning of his Naval Acad- 
emy career, "Brindy" has been a 
Navy man; and it is his intention to de- 
vote his postgraduate days to the service. 
In fact, he has always taken a keen in- 
terest in ships and boats, from his Naval 
Reserve days in San Francisco through his 
Academy course. He was a devotee of 
the activities of the San Francisco yacht 
clubs and Pacific Coast yacht races, 
and did considerable boat handling him- 
self in the "Golden Gate" Harbor. 

"Brindy" has made a place for him- 
self among the members of '32, a place 
by reason of his wide acquaintances 
and activities while at Annapolis. 

Though not always at the head of the 
class, "Brindy" is very popular for his 
practical scholarship. He is a smart lad, 
is a good judge of beverages, can fur- 
nish the latest jazz on the piano, can 
make any radio operate and sings a 
smooth tenor in "Sweet Adeline" and 
other well-known melodies. He has al- 
ways been a good member in good stand- 
ing of the Dunhill Club, rarely having 
less than a dozen good workable pipes. 


Columbus, Kansas 

AT various times during his boyhood 
career Clyde wanted to be a pro- 
fessional musician, a lawyer, a newspaper- 
man; and finally he joined the Navy. 
The various professions lost a good pros- 
pect and the Navy gained a good man. 

Although an inland boy, he has taken 
to seafaring life avidly. On Youngster 
Cruise he proved himself a real "salt." 
Eno boy is a great dragger; in fact, a 
week-end didn't pass during Youngster 
year but that he had some sweet young 
thing on the string. He continually raves 
about some blonde, brunette or whatever 
the case may be — Redheads? Never! Aca- 
demics never gave him any trouble and 
he could probably have starred if he had 
not spent so much time helping out less 
fortunate classmates. 

Clyde has an active nature and there- 
fore is a member in very poor standing 
of the radiator club. Out of doors, his 
first love is soccer; then in the spring 
the clay courts have a strong call for him. 
In the wintertime he does not park on 
the radiator but helps the Musical Clubs 
along both in the orchestra and the Glee

"Larry" "Brownie" "Lotty" 

Gloversville, New York 

Take a look at this big blonde boy 
from the north country and then just 
think what a life he must lead. But 
we won't go into that; we'll just consid- 
er the outward and visible signs. With 
pictures of the fairest of the fair on his 
locker door, he bites his lip over what 
he'll tell the last one now that a new 
one's on the make. Larry seems immune 
to the little cherub's arrows — it's just a 
great big game to him. They worry 
about him on two continents — maybe 
you've heard of his Battles of San Se- 
bastian and London town. 

Anyway, Larry eased into our midst 
by the skin of his molars on an umteenth 
alternate, but found little trouble there- 
after. Academics have never bothered 
him in the least, but neither has study 
hour. Perhaps his greatest passion is 
lacrosse, but every fall has found him 
working with the "B" squad. 

We like this Swede, we do; a great 
boy to make a liberty with and that in 
our mind qualifies anyone. Reliably 
pleasant, intent on his work, worldly in 
his ways, but above all, full of the love 
of living.

"Jack" "Lumley" "Stuphirt" 


Here they come, right down the main 
street of Billsport, and off the front 
page of "Grit" — "Gabby" Street, ole 
"Mule" Haas, and Jack himself. All 
wool and a yard wide, that's the one. 
Jack entered this place singing and laugh- 
ing. They moaned at his songs but they 
couldn't drown him out and he has been 
going his cheerful way ever since, never 
griping, never blue, always dispersing 
little rays of sunshine — and he's got a 
bagful of 'em. 

Did you ever hear how Jack always 
had the dope Plebe year? Did you ever 
hear him play the piano? In Rome, did 
you ever hear of anything particularly 
devilish that he didn't know something 
about? Never. Did you ever watch him 
fake a nosebleed after an attempt to walk 
through a wall? Anything for a laugh. 
Good humor and biceps are his big 

Jack's a real pal; he might hook your 
skivvies on the cruise, but he'd split his 
skags or Java with you just the same. 
He's the kind of man who's not a kind 
of man; he's the genuine article.

"Odie" "Corrode' "Rosenthal" 

Brookline, Massachusetts 

One day late in August of our Plebe 
year a tall lad came in through Gate 
Three for a four-year sojourn. Although 
he didn't know what it was all about, 
and insisted on sweeping everything 
under the locker for the first days, he 
soon became aware of the fact that he 
was a midshipman. 

Odie only goes to prove the rule that 
you can't judge a man by where he comes 
from. A rebel at heart, but appointed 
from the Bay State, he has lived about 
everywhere in the country and its pos- 
sessions, and was once one of those well- 
known Baltimore boys. 

Up until Second Class Year, his fa- 
vorite amusement was singing and whist- 
ling during study hour, but after that 
one could almost always find him among 
the scattered parts of the Victrola, to 
which he was making improvements. 

In the fall, company soccer claims him, 
but the rest of the year he is free to help 
push one of the one-fifty shells up and 
down that Severn. 


"Phil" "Cohen" "\Vhenya" 

Auburn, Maine 

A lam-chi, from the University of 
Maine, Phil has known the score 
since the first days of Plebe summer. It's 
a big jump from hunting moose to learn- 
ing about things naval, but Phil made it 
and finds it right in his line. We re- 
member the evening of the Dartmouth 
game in 1929 when Phil steered a party 
of green Youngsters safely through the 
pitfalls that beset their path in the great 
city of Philadelphia. 

Cohen is a conscientious worker. We 
can attest to that fact by displaying his 
awards won in small bore and in rifle 
since Plebe year. When the football sea- 
son closes, the radiator club loses a mem- 
ber in excellent standing and the small 
bore team gains a hard-working man- 
ager. First on small bore and then on 
outdoor rifle until June week, Phil labors 
for the glory of the squad. It is a 
tribute to his industry that no one has 
even come close to taking either manager 
jobs from him. 

Phil is a snake, but doesn't take his 
duties too seriously. So far, the O. A. O. 
hasn't appeared. The lad might be a 
Red Mike deep down in his heart.

Rochester, New York 

FOR four years Wu has successfully 
kept his friends guessing as to just 
what he would do next. As solemn 
as an undertaker one moment and ap- 
pearing to have gone mad the next, his 
methods of self-expression are effective, 
though at times a trifle violent. 

Wu has always maintained that he 
should have been an actor. His willing- 
ness to prove his contention has helped 
to brighten many a dull moment for 
highly amused spectators. 

Time never hangs heavily on Wu's 
hands. He always has one or two good 
books on his shelf to read in spare mo- 

, As for his faults, we regret to say that 
he has two. He has the alarming habit 
of suddeningly emitting hair-raising 
shrieks. Also, he has a passion for 
wooden mallets. Wu with a mallet in 
his hand is like a Malay who has run 
amuck. Luckily, bung starters are scarce 
in the present era, so he is generally a 
quiet and tractable gentleman. 

When Wu's puzzling exterior is pene- 
trated, one finds that he is as sincere and 
obliging a friend as could be wished for.

"Jack" "Jee" 

Buffalo, New York 

"t~jut on the other side and change the

is a great music lover and can enjoy any- 
thing from Wagner's Valkyrie to those 
barbarous renditions of present-day jazz. 
His other amusements consist of the 
"Cosmo," McClelland Barclay in particu- 
lar, The New Yorker and a special 
weakness for Jack Oakie and Aesop's 
Fables. That intangible quality of ap- 
preciation of a companion's good points 
plus the graciousness to overlook the bad 
ones has resulted in all friends and no 
enemies for our Jee. After Plebe year 
he left the arduous duties of basketball 
manager to engage himself in such pur- 
suits as drawing and making puns for the 
Log. For four years he has been one of 
the main cogs of the booming bass sec- 
tion in the choir, and was one of the 
charter members of that group belonging 
to the "Old Navy," who used to gather 
at the top of the ladder after evening

Sailors Never Die." Here's luck to you,

"Fee" "Adolf" 

Forrest City, Arkansas 

OUR Fee was originally from the Lone 
Star State, but claims Forrest City, 
Arkansas, as his home. One day while 
guarding the levee (a process con- 
sisting of smoking big black cigars to 
keep the mosquitoes off and shooting at 
mud turtles) he received word that he 
had passed the exams to our noble in- 
stitution of learning. Fee quickly packed 
his bag and boarded the Memphis Special 
for Crabtown, where history was being 
made, as the class of '32 was forming for 
a gallant and famous four-year career. 
Famous! — no end. 

Earl Thomson caught him and by the 
time that the track season had rolled 
around he was beating the varsity high 
jumpers fairly regularly. Youngster year, 
he amassed an awesome number of points 
to win a block N. 

We may forget his achievements in 
track; but we'll never forget his spirit of

"Van" "Guzz" "Neuve" 

Charlotte, North Carolina 

YES, girls, this is Guzz, but you are not 
his first victims. Many have fallen 
for that innocent, appealing gaze, that 
quiet manner, and have been unable to 
come out from under the spell. We 
rather suspect that a fair young femme 
back home occupies his mind, but he is 
still susceptible. 

Academics? His worries in this line 
are few as shown by, "Wife, wake me up 
when formation busts." Gus is a caulker 
of note and wide renown for his knack 
of dropping into the arms of Morpheus 
at any time, anywhere, with the calm 
serenity of a babe. 

Van had ideas of being an athlete. He 
has tried football, tennis and boxing, and 
although he still packs a mean wallop, 
he has become an advocate of the life less 
strenuous. He still labors under the im- 
pression that he can play tennis — poor, 
misguided youth. "Give up, Van!" 

For a long time Van has been consider- 
ing the merits of peanuts, but no matter 
where he is, or what he is doing, he has 
worlds of friends who wish him every 
success. "Best of luck."

"Fin" "Fish" "Lute" 

Kansas City, Kansas 

THE Sigma Chi's of Kansas University 
lost a mighty munificent brother 
when Lynn decided to don a midship- 
man's uniform. Finishing his Freshman 
year, he hastily scurried through his home 
town and made his way to the Academy 
in a dilapidated Ford. 

The activities for Lynn have held a 
potent lure. He has done everything 
from editing the Plebe Log to tangling 
with the Army in the Army-Navy game. 
He has even experienced the thrill ac- 
companying the successful completion of 
a re-exam. He had enough, however, 
and has not been bothered with the grim 
spectre of Academic Insufficiency again. 
"It's just a case of concentration," says 
Lynn, with one of his slow smiles, when 
questioned by our reporter; and our re- 
porter was convinced. 

Lynn battles away conscientiously on 
the football and lacrosse fields and it is 
this mannerism of the athlete which 
caused him to help check up many wins 
for the Navy. His perseverance and 
startling ability to set his mind and keep 
steadily on his course in spite of rocks 
and shoals has won for him the admira- 
tion of all who know him.

"Casey" "Bill" "Jack" 

Kansas City, Missouri 

A good wife because he is the wrong 
size to borrow clothes, only takes 
up his half of the room, always does his 
share, possesses humor at all times, studies 
occasionally, and, last but not least, he al- 
ways has the latest news, secrets, dope 
and lowdown of affairs from the nearest 
scuttlebutt. He will offer small odds on 
a sure thing and large odds on one not 
so sure. He never fails to have a good 
time whether it be in athletics, in society, 
or in the latest gripe session — therefore, 
for four years, Casey has qualified as a 
real roommate and pal. 

Bill hasn't always been in the Navy. 
He used to live in Kansas City — that 
glorious Capital of the World — and after 
a ten-thousand-mile bumming tour his 
desire for adventure brought him forth 
to a place where things happen, and 
Saturday night life comes once a week. 

For a specialty Jack has taken boxing 
and the little "Dynamiter" has proved 
two lefts are better than one right. His 
ability has drawn him above the ordinary 
class to where such specialists arrive — the

"junior" "Carlos" "Fairs" 

Atlanta, Georgia 

"X TOW where does this connection 

J_ > go through?" and similar queries 
may be heard issuing from Carl's general 
direction during the hour immediately 
preceding a Juice or Steam recitation. He 
has never been bored by the Ac's, since 
they have always managed to push him 
close enough to the requisite 2.5 to in- 
sure at all times an interesting contest. 

A hop is incomplete without his pres- 
ence, and few indeed have been those 
which have not found him dragging — in 
fact, he has won himself a reputation, in 
spite of the missionary work exerted by 
his wife in an attempt to save him from 
the errors of his ways. 

His is a mild disposition, and about all 
an attempt to start a nice interesting 
argument based on anything from the 
latest scuttlebutt on up gets out of him is 
a disinterested "I dunno, are you?" 

Carl doesn't know yet whether he's 

joining the fleet or the U. S. S. outside 

on graduation, but wherever he is, his 

many friends will wish him a sincere 

Good luck." 



Pomeroy, Ohio 

When Liet answered the call of the 
Service, he had already spent two 
years at old Ohio U brushing up an ac- 
quaintance with Horace, Pliny, Xenophon 
and other popular novelists of that an- 
cient day. Just what made him choose 
the Navy we cannot say — perhaps the 
dryness of Livy made wetness in huge 
chunks seem desirable. Or maybe some 
steamboat jaunts on the Ohio did it. Any- 
way, he came, he saw — he might even 
have conquered if it had not been for 
Math, Steam, Juice and other enemies of 
the language-minded. 

He frankly admits that he regards 
chess and checkers as the finest sports— 
except perhaps the rope-climb and other 
small gymnastic feats. Ping-pong? — too 
strenuous! However, he has found time 
to take part in that classic sport of 
wrestling. He also belongs to that select 
group known as the Fusileers, having in- 
herited somewhat of a shooting eye from 
his gran'dad. The Musical Clubs take 
up the rest of his spare moments.

"Joe" "Jo Jo" "J a P" 

Denver. Colorado 

The only Jaap in the Naval Academy 
— yes, sir, that's true, but at the same 
time it is far from being the only dis- 
tinguishing characteristic about Joe. 

Joe got his bearings in about nothing 
flat, which is another way of s:.ying a cozy 
little room in the Second Batt, and start- 
ed out to make a thorough success of his 
newly chosen career. He couldn't quite 
decide whether he wanted to shine aca- 
demically or athletically, so he did both. 
Few, indeed, are the sports at the 
Academy which have not seen his par- 
ticipation — football, wrestling, lacrosse, 
track, basketball and numerous others 
kept him busy continuously. Though not 
graced with quite enough ability to make 
the varsities, Joe did more than his share 
every year to bring the Harvard Shield 
to '32. Second Class year marked the ad- 
vent of more activities for him. 

Joe's academic excellence was one of 
continued improvement from year to 
year, and not a few of us will attest that 
his meticulous care in explaining obscure 
details helped to keep us from adorning 
more trees than we did.

"Navy" "Francis" "Kitty" 

New York City, N. Y. 

When "Navy Junior" is suggested, 
one naturally thinks of a man who 
has visited many places and seen many 
things. And Francis is a thoroughbred 
Navy Junior. By his power of observa- 
tion and his ability for concentration he 
hasn't missed a thing; and he has stored 
his storeroom of knowledge until we be- 
gin to wonder just how on earth a man 
of his proportions can know so much. 

Francis' life at the Naval Academy has 
not been a rose-strewn path ; but the com- 
placence with which he has smiled at 
trouble has endeared him to everyone. 
With a marvelous amount of "stick-to-it- 
iveness" and his omnidental smile he has 
always done everything that he has set 
out to do, and he has always done it well. 
His Log, Lucky Bag, Pep Committee and 
Ring Committee are good examples.

Larchmont, New York 

The Three Fates grinned at one an- 
other on the fifteenth of June in '28 
— they knew that their protege, Bill, was 
going to step into something — sudden ! 

Bill walked from a peaceful suburb of 
New York, Larchmont it's called, into a 
maelstrom — the situations into which he 
was tossed, "Les Moments Deplaisants," 
are strange enough to make a fair-sized 
book worth writing — but that's another 

In spite of all of his difficulties, his 
careless motto, "Think Nawthin' of It," 
seemed to be "Open Sesame" to a fruitful 
sojourn in his "Good Old Crabtown." 
Such a fact would be impossible without 
one's friends, and many of those he has 
made with his ever- ready, "What's the 
trouble, Pal?" Bill could never be accused 
of not paddling his own weight in the 
canoe — after all, what more can be said 
of a man's integrity? 

The way of least resistance is the long- 
est road, and the most comfortable — 
never do now what may be done later, 
because later it might not have to be done ! 


Deadwood, South Dakota 

"t-^vEadeye Dick from Deadwood" 
I J is perhaps too long and too fanci- 
ful a title for every-day use, but it is cer- 
tainly a fitting and descriptive one, for it 
has been well earned. Not only is he one 
of Navy's crack riflemen, but also a bona- 
fide native of Deadwood. While on the 
subject of titles, it may not be amiss to 
mention that "Ducky" is the standard one 
for equally appropriate reasons. 

This military life, irksome though it 
may be, seems to agree with this lad from 
the wild and woolly West. Even a mili- 
tary prep school was not enough to show 
him the folly of his ways ; moreover, he is 
the first man to go on record as saying 
that he did not hate infantry drill. Seri- 
ous, steady and conscientious, he has the 
ideal temperament for this type of exist- 
ence, particularly insofar as his shipmates 
are concerned. 

We are certainly glad that fate altered 
his course from sheep ranching or the 
School of Mines to Navigation, or per- 
haps, to become an Ordnance prof, who 
knows? In the meantime, we have had 
a good team mate, a delightful com- 
panion, and a real friend.

"Runt" "Pee Wee" 

Moberly, Missouri 

SOME people from Missouri may have 
to be shown but Runt usually finds 
out for himself, and along some lines he 
is a regular Columbus. Pee Wee does 
lack length. A stick of dynamite is not 
very large — but what a myriad of things 
it can do when it's lit off! He loves his 
fun and is always in on any bull-sessions, 
sings, water fights or shower parties. 

Pee Wee does use his power for some 
good purposes. In the fall, whenever his 
knee is in joint, he shows the boys what 
to do with a football, but he is always 
looking forward to spring, because Runt 
is a smoothy on the hot corner. He's 
also somewhat a swimmer, being wont 
to practice in fountains at two A. M. 

Although sometimes close to the rag- 
ged edge, Pee Wee stays sat, sufficiently 
so that he does not have to worry a great 

Runt is pretty much a ladies' man, 
but he does not seem desirous of remain- 
ing in one place. He is just holding out 
'til the right girl comes along and then 
look out!

un myself."

"Walt" "Tubby" 

Knightstown, Indiana 

Walt came to the Naval Academy 
a chubby little rosy-cheeked lad 
from the corn State of Indiana, a true 
representative of his State. Since then he 
has changed considerably. Old Bluebeard 
had nothing on Walt, for his blue chin 
and soft eye have charmed many a 
maiden's heart. 

Tubby has been a matter of concern 
to Mates of the Deck ever since Second 
Class Summer. Those finely penned let- 
ters from Roanoke, Virginia, have been 
having a marked effect not only on the 
Mates, but even on Tubby. 

Since Plebe year he has been known 
chiefly throughout the Regiment as that 
trombone player in the N. A. Ten. He 
has gone in for the Musical Clubs in a 
more or less tolerable manner, having 
worked with the Glee Club and the Or- 

Not generally athletically inclined, our 
Walt has shown that he is able to han- 
dle himself when the occasion demands. 

All persons holding the friendship of 
Walt will quickly agree that he is a loyal 
and generous friend.

Deer Park, Washington 

Hal was born in the land where 
wheat and forests flourish, but after 
spending his childhood there he decided 
that such was not to be his life ; he chose 
to be an officer instead of a farmer or 

After the newness of the service was 
past, he soon found an outlet for his 
energy in the Juice Gang. Being another 
one of these infernal savoirs, he was well 
equipped for thinking up new intricate 
lighting effects and sign boards for the 
Masqueraders. The "prop room" of the 
Juice Gang was seldom without his cheer- 
ing presence, and when there were hard 
jobs he was always there. To risk death 
in getting a sign up meant nothing to 
him, and as a reward all he asked was 
a good cup of Java and a friendly bull 
session with the gang. 

For two years he nearly convinced us 
that he was a confirmed Red Mike, but 
even the best of us fall. Though his 
locker door was covered, we are of the 
opinion that there was one picture upon 
which he gazed more frequently than oth- 


"Babe' "Gay" "Bill" 

Pomeroy, Washington 

Cursed with that same ambition for 
higher things that leads us all into 
four years where "Severn joins the tide" 
was Garry in 1927. Within a year he 
started on his Academy career as a mem- 
ber of Thirty-Two. 

Perhaps it was his sudden introduction 
to water in large quantities after years 
spent in the wheat lands of Eastern Wash- 
ington, perhaps not. At any rate, Garry 
saw a shell and decided that he could and 
would row with the best of them. He 
rowed with the Plebe crew, then went to 
Poughkeepsie and missed the worst of 
Youngster cruise. The end of Young- 
ster year saw him sporting an "N." 

Faced by the necessity of strict training, 
he had very little time for the usual 
vices of the Regiment. However, now 
and then, during the off season, we found 
that he went over big with the fair sex 
on any and all occasions. But then he al- 
ways had a line that flashed into action 
quickly and accurately. 

In several instances it was necessary 
for Garry to prove the mastery of mind 
over academics, but he always was the 
victor. Here's wishing him luck!

"Plunger" "One Lung" 

Montour Falls, New York 

^j-^vid you see those sketches for to- 

JL/ day?" No, Johnny never cared 
for Steam. In fact it caused him a lot of 
worry at times — so much so that he could 
never take time off to indulge in his fa- 
vorite sports, basketball and baseball. 

However, this Cook Academy that 
Johnny brags about certainly did teach 
him Dago. It also helped to keep many 
of the Second Batt boys sat, because 
Plunger never minded helping the fel- 
lows out. 

When it comes to women, Johnny is at 
the head of his class. That grin of his 
seems to get them just as it has made him 
so many friends in the Academy. Some 
lucky girl will probably grab him some 
day, however, if she never hears him 
sleep, and then the Navy will have to 
share Johnny's interest. 

After First Class Cruise, however, we 
hold no fears for John's interest in the 
Navy. Whenever anything was being 
done top side, John was watching. His 
ideas on seamanship should make him 
welcome on any ship. His grin and gen- 
eral atmosphere of geniality will put him 
at the top of the muster in short order.

"Joisey" "Sweatshirt" "Cec" 
Trenton, New Jersey 

THE Ramblin' Wreck from Carnegie 
Tech turned out to be a salty sea law- 
yer. The wilds of Jersey sent us a white- 
haired boy whose faults are few but 

He would rather read than eat — almost, 
unless, of course, the material is text- 
books. Cec is also partial to sleep and 
music, but they can hardly be called faults. 
Has always been savvy and sat, indicating 
that he is to go far in this old world, and 
his ready grin is going to help him over 
the rough spots. The girls (except one) 
are the least of his worries, and he might 
even be called a Red Mike. 

He is a Lacrosse player of note in spite 
of his fourth-platoon stature, which once 
deceived even our doughty clean-and- 
press establishment into putting an M 
over his hard-earned 32. 

Cec lives from day to day, and from 
leave to leave, and hasn't a care in the 
whole world. Determined, savvy, good- 
natured, and carefree — a darn good com- 
bination. Happy landing, Whity !

"Bob" "Fisty" 

Lebanon, New Hampshire 

Bob swept down from the woody 
northland full of hope, energy, and 
a determination to make good. The Aca- 
demic Departments have fired their broad- 
sides, but when the smoke of battle had 
cleared away we always found Bob right 
side up. Early in his career, he went out 
for soccer, but Fate intervened and he 
was destined never to realize his ambi- 
tions in athletics. 

Although not an athlete, he is always 
working out on those contraptions in the 
gym. However, a good game of bridge 
will always keep him indoors. Perhaps 
he would have been a savoir if he had 
not taken his game so seriously. Not- 
withstanding this weakness, he always 
knew when to take time out and crack 
the books when his status as midshipman 
became seriously insecure. He is a quiet, 
good-natured fellow with many friends. 
He always accepts his fortunes or mis- 
fortunes philosophically. His ability to 
see things as they really are will certainly 
stand him in good stead in his future life, 
and all hands join in wishing him the 
best of luck in everything that he may 


"Ben" "Charlie" 

Boston, Massachusetts 

Midshipmen may come and mid- 
shipmen may go but there will al- 
ways be one who will remain in the mem- 
ories of his classmates. Such a man is 
Charlie Lyons, commonly known to his 
friends as Ben. Whether it be "hunting 
snipe" or walking extra duty, one can al- 
ways depend on a smiling countenanced, 
wisecracking Ben to aid in whiling away 
odd moments. 

Not an athlete by nature, Ben has al- 
ways displayed the utmost interest in 
sports about the Academy. It is a certain- 
ty that he would have become a Naval 
Academy star had he the stature neces- 
sary for a position on a major team. With 
the fairer sex, his abilities were quite 
another thing and he has shown himself 
to be no "palooka," possessing the trait 
of a remarkable dancer and that auburn 
curly hair which draws the femmes. Some 
girl up Massachusetts way is sure to be

thoughts of the future.

"Pat" "Patrick Hug" 

Ogden, Utah 

Faith! Who did you say? Maher, 
pronounced "Mah-her," please, every- 
body. Hails from Utah, with the origi- 
nal limb of the tree sprouting in Coun- 
ty Clare, in the land of Shamrocks. Grew 
restless at an early age, and received his 
first taste of the sea at the San Diego 
Preparatory School. From there it was 
a short but inevitable step to the banks 
of the Severn. When we heard he was 
from Utah, we thought that at last our 
boyish hopes of some day seeing a real, 
live Mormon were fulfilled, but not so. 
Though we might say he has slight 
tendencies in this direction. 

We despair of presenting Pat's person- 
ality in such limited space, for it is, in- 
deed, worthy of a great deal. Congenial, 
indolent, generous, disposed to interest in 
anything containing the element of 
chance, possessing a rare sense of humor 
and a typical Irish wit, he finds life very 
simple, deriving nothing but joy and 
pleasure from both work and play. One 
never catches him in a mood, his dis- 
position being one of consistent amia- 
bility; we have found every association 
with him a real pleasure.

"Charlie" "Smitty" 

Albany, Georgia 

Georgia produced more than pe- 
cans when she gave us Charlie. He 
came to us from an adventurous career 
at Marion Institute where he kept out of 
trouble long enough to amass the neces- 
sary gray matter to pass the entrance 
exams with a flick of the wrist and join 
the class of 1932. 

As a platoon pusher during Plebe Sum- 
mer, he exhibited the old ability to keep 
cool in the crisis, and has shown plenty 
more of same ever since, from the perils 
of Plebe year through the snares set for 
seniors. His nature is one of quiet 
geniality, and a taste for good books, 
music and women give him the soul rest- 
ing recreation that he needs to be happy ; 
a periodic game of basketball, or a work- 
out in the boxing loft enables him to pre- 
serve the splendid vigor which he 
brought, along with his soft Southern ac- 
cent, from his beloved Georgia. 

We are sure that Charlie will be 
right there at the right time all during 
life, and we would not be surprised to see 
him make a name for himself.

"Bunge" "Micky" "Oosie" 

Florence, Colorado 

He came to us from Colorado, Con- 
stantinople and way stations after 
spending his youth on a destroyer; for 
proof, see his rolling, bouncing destroyer- 
man gait. From years of seagoing and 
study, he knows more about navies and 
naval men than any two other men in the 
class. Caution: start him talking about 
Turkey or navies at your own risk. 

Micky is a gadget fiend, delighting 
to bewilder inspecting officers with tele- 
scopes, sextants, globes, ship models, pro- 
tractors, chronometers, and what-have- 
you. But once you wade in through 
all of the junk, you find him generously 
eager to lend you any or all of the finest 
set of tools in the Battalion. What he 
hasn't got he'll be glad to get for you. 

For several years, in the ancient days, 
"when I was a Plebe" and "when I was 
a Youngster," Micky lived in Crabtown 
and dispensed great quantities of hos- 
pitality and food. For this and many 
other pleasant memories, we remember 
him with our blessings. 


"Modoc" "Beans" "Marmaduke" 
Fort Shafter, Hawaii 

OUR boy was born at Ft. Ward — an 
island in Puget Sound — and has 
been at sea ever since. Being an Army 
Junior, he for a long time contemplated 
going to West Point, but while prepping 
at Severn, he saw the error of his ways 
and decided to come with us. 

Marmaduke is quite handy with all 
manners of blunderbusses and holds sev- 
eral medals for excellence in small arms 
firing. He is a consistent member of all 
the small bore teams and at times is a big 
bore also. His success is due to his guid- 
ing maxim; "Hold 'em and squeeze 'em." 

He also has the amusing habit of being 
in the shower whenever formation busts 
and has to do the last fifty yards in zero 
flat — but he always gets there before late 
blast. It is a most inspiring sight to see 
him come charging along the company 
front pulling on his clothes as he comes. 
Aside from that and a few other "fai- 
blesses" he is quite reg. 

An exponent of original thought. Will 
argue on any subject whatsoever on no 
notice at all — and will generally convince 
his opponents that they are wrong.

"Ernie" "Power Dive Ernie" "Brute" 

Beaufort, North Carolina 

Ernie hails from Beaufort, North 
Carolina, but received part of his 
high school education in Miami, Florida. 

All of Ernie's athletic endeavors have 
been spent rolling around on the wres- 
tling mat perfecting the scissors, grape- 
vine, double bar and many other holds. 

Like most of us he has to meet many 
obstacles in his academic path but that 
"old Navy fight" has pulled him through 
so far in life and probably always will. 

His weaknesses are twofold; namely, 
women and a full moon. Were no men- 
tion made of Ernie's dragging activities 
an important side of his nature would 
be left untouched. Tea rooms and Carvel 
Hall thrive on his patronage, and that 
of the poor soul he inveigles into drag- 
ging blind. For to no one person he con- 
fines his attention ; but instead almost 
weekly, bevies of the fair sex enjoy his 
good nature and cheery personality. 

For four years we have laughed at 
this embryo admiral, and enjoyed every 
word of his conversation. We are sure 
to miss him, and we look forward to the 
future days when we shall talk over Mid- 
shipmen days with him.

YES, ladies, he's a Rambler. You 
can't name a place that he hasn't 
been. He started out early in life with 
an undaunted ambition to see the world 
but never thought that it would be

Mac admits that life at the Academy 
is no bed of roses. He is the fellow that 
you may knock down but can never 
knock out. Academics haven't scored a 
knockout yet, but, boy, they surely have 
had him down for the count of nine 
twice. He's a sure bet to pull sat. 

No. Mac doesn't claim to be a great, 
big brawny athlete but should the occasion 
arise, we know that he would be master 
of the situation. He's all there mentally, 
morally and physically. 

And is he a wow with the ladies ! Et, 
comment ! ! The way that he handles 
that Navy line makes one think he's a 
Texas cowboy. Just see if you can go 
to a hop and find Mac absent. 

Now that this story is about finished, 
we'll sling a few bouquets and hope that 
Mac isn't Scotch. He's a real, regular, 
honest to goodness good fellow.

"Bob" "Hairbreadth" "Pansy" 
Long Beach, California 

It was the call of the sea — not the call 
of the wild — that brought Bob all the 
way from the land of sunkist maids to the 
Naval Academy. Bob hails from the 
Sunshine State, better known as Cali- 
fornia, and lays claim to Long Beach as 
his home port. He says all good ships 
hail those parts. Ask him! The early 
summer of 1927 found Bob answering 
the call of the sea by donning the uni- 
form of a Plebe at the U. S. Naval 
Academy. Oh, yes ! Four more years were 
spent as a midshipman, during which 
time he has managed to keep always one 
jump, or perhaps two, ahead of the Ac 
Departments making for himself a suc- 
cessful and enviable record in that direc- 

Here's to Bob in his future endeavors; 
may they be as enterprising and as suc- 
cessful as those of his past. His future 
shipmates have in him a prize, of which 
we know they will be proud. 


"Dory" "Skeevartz" "Izzy" 

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 

A sudden commotion, strange noises, 
laughter and behold, Dory is 
in the room. Good-natured, congenial 
and well liked, Dory will be long remem- 
bered as one of the boys that helped make 
'32 the class it is. 

For amusement, Dory thumped a drum 
in the Hell Cats for three years, besides 
dragging frequently and satisfactorily. 
His drags kept up the average at the 
Hops during his career as a midshipman. 

A firm believer that "Plebes are 
Plebes," Dory is well known amongst 
the Fourth Class. He has that knack of 
running the boys, though, which affords 
them as much amusement from it as he 

The number of fellows down to the 
room after chow in the evening testi- 
fies to his popularity, and his generous 
disposition has won him a host of staunch 
friends that will always remember him. 
So here's to you Dory, "Bottoms up," 
"Skol," happy landings, and all the rest 
of them. If good wishes have anything 
to do with it, you should make Admiral 
the first cruise.

"]immy" "Smitty" 

Columbia, Missouri 

One often hears, "The best things 
come in small packages." Well 
here's proof. Jimmy came to us from 
Missouri University where for a year he 
had indulged in the habits of college 
from going Kappa Alpha to wearing a 
bearskin coat. His quiet and retiring but 
likable manner soon won the friend- 
ship of many of his classmates. 

He has a yen for juice and early in his 
career received a license as a radio op- 
erator. The radio club has taken some of 
his valuable time, academics seldom wor- 
ry him. When horizontal exercise grew 
tiresome, the wrestling loft held a certain 
lure. Smitty is another one of our well 
known Smoke Park athletes, indulging 
not only in that brand of baseball, but 
being a strong supporter of terrace basket- 
ball as well. 

Jimmy says, "Who knows, maybe the 
tallest man in the crowd is standing on 
a rail." As yet we don't know where our 
blonde boy will settle down, but wher- 
ever it is we have an idea that there will 
be plenty of beer there also.

Marshall, Indiana 

Redeye hails from Indiana and is 
proud of it as all good Hoosiers 
should be. He found life at Purdue a bit 
too strenuous ; so after some two years of 
trying to become a civil engineer, he came 
to the Academy with the usual high hopes 
and ambitions. However, as time goes 
on we find that most of these have suc- 
cumbed to an easy death. 

He seldom, if ever, buys cigarettes 
and is constantly borrowing matches. 
Piebe summer he exhibited a strange and 
unnatural liking for that delicacy known 
as redeye. The subject of this abnormal 
passion was rapidly transferred to him, 
and the name has stuck throughout. Dur- 
ing Plebe year we heard of him as the 
Indiana farmer on the wrestling mat. Al- 
though he had never played football be- 
fore, a big N was proudly displayed dur- 
ing second class year. 

"Have you seen my new girl?" — that's 
a favorite of his, for during four years 
he has six times fallen prey to the fairer 
sex. But he still admits that he is holding 
out for that million! Power to you, lad!

"Larry" "Smitty" 

Bloom field, New Jersey 



iere from, mister?" His re- 
ply would contain enough an- 
swers to give Richard Haliburton a con- 
test for having "been places." He start- 
ed his career in the service at Fort George 
Wright, Washington, and then partly be- 
cause of his desire to see the world but 
mainly because of parental direction, he 
visited in rapid succession practically every 
post occupied by the army. 

From his early life on army posts and 
his military bearing you'd expect him to 
be one of the Executive Department's 
staunchest supporters. Well — he is; in 
fact the hours spent on the awkward 
squad and the extra duty squads prove 
his love for the old army game of carry- 
ing a rifle. 

Every September finds Larry back at 
the Academy giving his efforts holding 
down left end on Navy's eleven. In the 
Spring, you'll find him out on the la- 
crosse field showing the "Hameneggers" 
how to get the little rubber ball past the 
goalie, and academics don't give him half 
the trouble that he thinks they do. 


"Slippery Joe" "Harve" 

Grundy Center, Iowa 

Joe DE Tschirgi — Grundy Center — 
Ioway — Slippery Joe — round hulking 
shoulders — uncombed hair — that's Harvey 

Harve knew enough to stay away 
from here but his curiosity got the best 
of him. He heard that somewhere across 
the Father of Waters and the high moun- 
tains was the great water. (An old In- 
dian chief told him.) So Harve set out. 

When he got here all he found was sea 
nettles and footballs. What he did with 
the sea nettles is one story and what 
he did with a football we all know. Be- 
sides football, Harve went out for La- 
crosse but he was so rough he had to 
stop it because killing people was against 
his nature even though he does come from 
the west. 

Off the field he is always found with 
a smile and a personality that you just 
can't help but like, and he has a winning 
manner which will aid him in reaching 
the top. 

By the way, we all know him as "Slip- 
pery Joe." Why? Well, you know some 
people are called greasy.

"Wallie" "Cowboy" 

Madison, Maine 

When Cowboy decided to leave the 
University of Maine he left it in 
body only, for his heart was still there. 
Long before the rest of the world became 
tired of the Stein Song the more patient 
of us down here were debating whether 
to drown him or send him back. 

Athletics are a constant source of pleas- 
ure to him. Each fall he plays class foot- 
ball, while in the winter and spring he 
devotes his attention to rifle. His real 
love, though, is handball, which claims 
all his spare time. 

He has an uncanny knack for getting 
to the source of information. Whenever 
any scuttlebutt dope has to be verified, 
Cowboy is visited, like the Oracle, by in- 
credulous individuals. If he affirms it, 
then it is truth, indeed. 

His cheery smile and sunny good na- 
ture have made him a host of friends. His 
never failing source of information about 
"Now when I was up to Maine . . ." has 
always afforded his listeners much amuse- 
ment. We know that he will be a wel- 
come addition to the fleet at the end of 
our four years together by the bay. Best 
of luck, Wallie!

"Dick" "Roger" 

Baltimore, Maryland 

Dick is another Baltimore boy who 
decided to "make good" and take 
a chance on mess-hall eggs. In the first 
he has succeeded, and to the latter he has 
become immune. He is always happy, 
but it cannot be said that he is dumb as 
he has been peculiarly successful in miss- 
ing the trees. 

Athletically, Dick spends the fall in 
cross-country, the winter in fencing, and 
the spring in track. During the summer 
he is either in the swimming pool or on 
the tennis courts taking a workout. 

Although he makes extravagant claims 
about being a Red Mike it is seldom that 
he misses a hop ; while, after every leave 
his thoughts and correspondence are al- 
ways considerably increased. It may be 
truthfully stated that these and his work- 
outs are the things that he takes most 

He is a gentleman, a scholar, a con- 
noisseur of prunes and cake, and a judge 
of good drinking water. His pleasant dis- 
position and optimism make him a good 
friend and pal.

"Bob" "Undie" 

Concord, New Hampshire 

Bob entered the Naval Academy as a 
fresh lad of sixteen, his heart beat- 
ing high in hopes of service in the ro- 
mantic life of the sea, having prepped at 
Swavely amidst the atmosphere of 
Manassas Marvels and Bull Run lore. 

Judging by his names, one might im- 
agine Bob wooden, but on the contrary 
he is usually sat for at least a good part 
of the time. First sections hold no ter- 
rors for him, nor, on the other hand, is 
he unduly alarmed by temporary and in- 
frequent trips to the other end of the 

Upon looking in at an informal at Car- 
vel Hall, one might often find Bob trip- 
ping the light fantastic. And then again, 
one might not. Bob is like that. About 
once a year he contracts the well-known 
heart attack, in the spring of course, but 
usually pulls through before the cruise. 

Although a small fellow physically, 
Bob is an enthusiastic follower of swim- 
ming and water polo, and may often be 
seen splashing about the pool. 

Quiet and discreet, Bob will always 
be a good estimate of the situation. 


''Lewy" "P Lewis" 

Birmingham, Alabama 

Porter joined the pampered pets at 
the tender age of seventeen years, with 
the innocent bloom of youth and an op- 
timism that could laugh at the worst that 
the Navy could offer. 

Porter is a very serious-minded young 
man. He likes to argue, and has made 
it a habit to take the opposite side from 
his "wife," whom he declares is always 
wrong. To academics, he is invulnerable ; 
an examination is but a mere detail. But 
it is true that he cringes slightly at the 
vaporous hiss of "steam." Porter's neat- 
ness of person and room has been the de- 
light of the Executive department. Some 
day there will be a ship on which clean- 
liness surpasses Godliness, and its skip- 
per will be Porter Lewis. Unfortunately, 
girls, he is a confirmed red mike and has 
never been known to drag any of the 
deadly sex. 

"Being a red mike is being sensible," 
quoth Porter in many brilliant orations 
delivered in hopes of converting his 
roommate. "Think of all the money you 
save, all the worry and care avoided — 
experiences of other unfortunates have 
proved that I am right."

"Jack" "Red" 

Saylesville, R. I. 

Enter a plebe: "Sir, will you help 
me with this math? I just can't 
see the light." And in ten minutes, an- 
other fourth classman is ready to crack 
a 4.0, having located one of the few men 
who remember what they've rushed 
through during the first few years of ac- 
ademics here. 

So it is not strange that when four 
years ago this industrious Rhode Islander 
chose the Navy for his calling, he hur- 
dled the exams and very quickly found 
himself among the outstanding men of 
'32. Of that happy clan known as the 
savvy (and, to boot, a diligent worker) 
Jack starred in studies and furnished a 
living example of the meaning of "asset." 

In athletics Red has won deserved 
fame. For four years he has been a 
strong link in our soccer team, this last 
year — its captain. Soccer out of season, 
you are likely to find him with 
the boxing squad. But, then, "Red 
Mike," you say? By no means. "Sir, 
the situation is well in hand." An ex- 
ceptional example of the true gentleman, 
sound and wholesome, Jack has earned 
the respect and esteem of us all.

Uj t ey, Acker! Got any good books 
il to read?" Who in Bancroft Hall 
has not heard that well-known cry? — a 
cry to which a response has never been 
lacking, regardless of the tastes of the 
individual. Frankie's private library has 
always been extensive and pleasing; his 
preference for the latest mystery stories 
is remarkable. Does this indicate a pos- 
sible ambition for the future? Perhaps 
only a hobby, for radio seems to have 
claimed him as one of its devotees. 

Where sports were concerned, Frankie 
was never meant to star; so he quietly 
took his place among the non-athletic. 
His ability to pass every swimming test 
after hard work and then develop a 
stroke proves that he is very diligent. 

New York and New Jersey bred Frank 
in a salty air, but offered him few op- 
portunities to exercise any bent towards 
naval life. Four years with the Regiment 
and in contact with the fleet have given 
him a polish which, in addition to his 
shining virtue of good fellowship, quali- 
fy him as an officer and a gentleman. We 
are sorry to lose him to the outside.

"Dub" "Pop" 

Redmond, Oregon 

Give him a little fire in the mountains, 
some flapjack flour and water, and 
then stand by for a meal fit for a king. 
While this is a very excellent accom- 
plishment, it can hardly be called the best 
background for unraveling the mysteries 
of navigation. However, "Dub" has 
fared better than the average in the battle 
with the academic departments, for he 
always knows how to work the prob. 

On outgrowing the rifle of his youth 
in the mountains, our Dunbar felt a 
strong yearning to play with the ponder- 
ous poundage of Naval ordnance. Ac- 
cordingly, one bright and summer day 
he appeared in Crabtown, firmly resolved 
to revolutionize the Navy. During sec- 
ond class summer Dub came into his 
own. Like a mother hen protecting her 
chicks, he herded his flock of "sand 
blowers" back and forth, thereby gaining 
the appellation of "Pop." 

We are sure that the characteristics that 
have made him many strong friends at 
the Academy will continue to make him 
many more friends when he joins the 


"Tom" "Mike" "Bonecrusber" 
Dyersburg, Tennessee 

Word finally penetrated the inner 
fastness of the Tennessee wilder- 
ness via the grapevine telegraph and the 
Bonecrusher broke through the brambles 
and bushes in time to keep an appoint- 
ment at Bancroft Hall. He brought with 
him a big grin, a broad Southern accent, 
a pair of big feet, and some football am- 
bitions that have since been realized. 

It was not until after he had battled 
the first week fog that he was able to 
distinguish between fellow plebes and 
Ensigns. About two experiences of 
knocking off rates with the latter had a 
persuading effect. 

Tom is just about a charter member 
of the Cosmo Club and any obstacles im- 
posed by the academic departments have 
failed to disturb him. Football came in 
for a lot of attention early in Plebe year 
and since that time the Bonecrusher has 
assured himself of a berth on the Varsity. 

The four years at the Academy have 
made Tom a lot of friends, and the same 
characteristics which have made them 
and have brought him success in foot- 
ball and academic pursuits will stand him 
in good stead in later life.

Again New York presents its offer-

pared to the physique that this walking 
Atlas carries. Interested in the "for bet-

looks at 'em, loves 'em, looks for another 
and leaves the passing fancy to scoop up 
the remnants of a shattered left auricle 
and mend it as best she may. It seems 
that the ladies prefer blondes as well as

trip with ease. His good nature, good 
looks, and his "Good God, let's eat," will 
always make him a desirable sidekick for 
anyone. Nothing will ever stop him, lest 
it be a "blizzard*." In athletics he has 
attained success when his radiator cronies 
did not seduce him to Al Moore's for a

wards. Ask any of his opponents in

"Ochum" "Ty" "Tyro" 

Rochester, New York 

Having spent a year at Colgate and 
some time searching through 
Europe, our "Ochum" decided that a 
military career was the only thrilling trade 
to follow. Debating between the Foreign 
Legion and the United States Naval 
Academy, and choosing the lesser of the 
two evils, "Ochum" strolled through No. 
2 Gate one sunny day in June and drop- 
ped his suitcase in the Rotunda. 

During his four years' sojourn within 
the mighty Halls of Bancroft, "Ochum" 
has led a carefree life, free from over- 
work and worries. Studies came easy and 
demerits were few and far apart. 

Tyro's understanding is something to 
marvel at and even his drags, who were 
many and very devoted, have often been 
heard to ask; that is, when they were 
able to break a piercing gaze from his 
soulful eyes, "What size shoes do you 
wear, Darling?" the answers were varied 
and quite clever but never definite.

Watch him closely — what is that enve- 
lope, so obviously addressed in a femi- 
nine hand, that he is adroitly trying to 
slip under the blotter? "Just a letter 
from a fellow I used to know," he ven- 
tures weakly upon being apprehended. 

It was not such a long way from New 
London to Annapolis, but it seemed a 
long way back to Ben, especially when 
perturbed by thoughts of the aforemen- 
tioned originator of that feminine hand- 
writing. Many would doubt that such 
thoughts really could disturb him, as his 
genial outlook on life seemingly pre- 
cludes all worry. 

Ben has had no tender spot in his heart 
for the radiator in either warm or cold 
weather. Every fall finds him forward 
passing with the hustlers or line plunging 
for the glory of '32. And even the cold- 
est weather is no deterrent to him. 

He has been a true friend to us all. Al- 
ways there to give a fellow a hand when

"Harry" "H. I." "Bag" "Al" 

Evanston, Illinois 

ON the summer of 1928 our Al came 
out of the West to join the Navy. 
Although he came from the land of farm- 
ers and gunmen, he was one of the few 
that knew the ways and customs of this 
new life. With his good humor and 
easy-going manner, he soon made a host 
of friends. 

As for academics, they were mere 
trifles. He was not a savoir and had his 
troubles, but they soon disappeared when 
he decided to go to work. His favorite 
pastime was to go "unsat" in the fall and 
then do work of first-section calibre to 
get his Christmas leave. In the languages 
he was more than good. Dago was sim- 
ple. And how often he has awed his 
friends with the "rhetorical bombast"!

the person of one Woz. 

He came imbued with what seemed 
boundless energy, both physical and 
mental. The former manifested itself in 
any available form of athletic workout 
and not infrequent "rough-houses." His 
mental curiosity seemed insatiable, even 
when directed along academic channels. 
His favorite textbook was, however, Web- 
ster's Collegiate Dictionary, which he 
chose, no doubt, for its wide diversity of 
subjects. His disposition was subject to 
the usual ups and downs which are man's 
privilege, yet never did his irrespressible 
wit desert him, wit bespeaking Celtic 
forbears. It soon became apparent 
that he who dared to oppose him in either 
argument or repartee stood somewhat less 
than an even chance of winning the 
moral victory. Whether he remains in 
the Service or seeks his fortune on the 
outside, he is well equipped with the in- 
telligence, personality and common sense 
to justify his decision by success.

Waterloo, Iowa 

East is East and West is West, but 
the Middle West is — well, just ask 
Fred. Laboring under this obstacle, 
Nemo had a lot to live down but, starting 
right in, he soon achieved the impossible. 
With a strong desire to build up a 
formidable physique, Fred managed to 
pass the afternoons of Plebe year work- 
ing out in the gym; later this occupation 
was succeeded by track Youngster spring ; 
then boxing and class football Second 
Class year. 

Athletics do not take all of the points 
with Nemo, however; just gaze at some 
of his art that appears so often in the 
Log, and you will realize that the artistic 
side is being taken care of as well. Then, 
too, we cannot overlook his musical trend, 
which generally gets the better of him 
while waiting for inspections Saturday 

By nature, Fred is quiet, agreeable and

Jim deserves a lot of credit for the way

The old story of Plebe academic trou-

Neatness, steadiness, thoroughness and

Pavilion, New York 

Pavilion lost not only its all-round

Since Plebe year Pete has left a perfect

onstrated chiefly on the diamond. He 
uses a baseball glove for a pillow, with 
the natural result that his sweater now 
carries an "N" with a white background.

the Midshipmen. Don't be misled by his 
picture, girls; he isn't that handsome. 
However, the fair ones seem easy for 
him, as he gets plenty of fan mail. 

He contributes to the Hall an air of 
seriousness when working and a cheer- 
ful smile and greeting when not serious- 
ly engaged. Though at times reserved, 
this quietness, combined with his per- 
petual good nature and sense of fair play, 
makes him a shipmate desired by all.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 

Come on, turn out, John, that's not a 
fire alarm or wedding bells, it's 
reveille, so out you come. It is thus that 
George is launched on many a weary day. 

George is always happy — even before 
steam exams. Although he has received 
some hard bumps, he always comes 
through with a smile. 

A game of cards, a good dance, or a 
soft bed pleases him. The evenings gen- 
erally find him in bed with one or more 
textbooks. "What's the assignment, 
Pete?" After scanning the pages, he finds 
that there is really nothing to the lesson, 
so he closes his eyes and doesn't bother to 
open them until reveille the next morn- 
ing. However, in the big battle with 
academics he has always managed to keep 
a fair amount of velvet between him and 
the old 2.5. 

When he drags, it is always his ray 
of sunshine, so he says, and we don't 
often doubt his word. We don't see 
where he gets it, but he surely seems to 
have plenty of drag with a goodly num- 
ber of the fairer sex. 

George is a friend worthy of being 
called a friend. Here's luck to you.

"Eddie" "Cannonball" 

Yakima, Washington 

Eddie is the possessor of an en- 
gineering mind that gets those criti- 
cal little details out of an assignment 
which mean the difference between a 3.0 
and a star average. A chemical engi- 
neering student at the University of 
Washington, to his surprise he found 
himself one day on his way to Crabtown 
to become a full-fledged member of our 
sketch and describe artists. Since that time 
he has made good an admirable course 
through these uncertain academic seas of 
ours without appreciable set or drift. If 
you don't get the skinny of things, Eddie 
can usually set you right. 

Have you ever seen a rNt gyrating a 
mad course about Smoke Park? If so, 
it was probably Eddie on roller skates. 

As for weaknesses, we might men- 
tion school teachers and singing in 
the showers. Eddie shoots small bore and 
outdoor rifle very well and has proved 
a valuable addition to these teams. 

We shall always remember him as 
savvy, even to brilliance, through steady 
and consistent effort. 


"Charlie" "Pammer" 

Hampstead, New Hampshire 

When Charlie took the midship- 
man's oath, Dartmouth lost a good 
man. He hails from New Hampshire, 
and supposedly he was to patronize a 
home institution; but the Navy sounded 
a stronger call, and fortunately for us 
he heeded it. 

He is a true student; if there is some- 
thing that he doesn't understand, he stays 
with it until he finds out what is what. 
Consequently, he stands high in his class, 
his standing improving each year. 

It is an off day when the Mate fails to 
bring him at least two letters, excluding 
advertisements. Pammer's large cor- 
respondence is his pride and joy and our 

Every afternoon Charlie can be found 
in the gym participating in some sport 
or the other. He uses his strength very 
handily in quelling any insubordination in 
his room. Generally the culprit finds 
himself in a cold shower before he real- 
izes what has happened. 

Charlie will always be remembered 
as a man who appreciates a good joke, 
even if it is on himself, and the one who 
is the kind of a shipmate everyone wants.

"Willeye" "Bill" 

Washington, D. C. 

Willeye doesn't talk much between 
taps and reveille. He plays the 
banjo when you can't talk him out of it. 
He won't admit that he's a savoir, and 
doesn't go to sleep at Hygiene lectures. 

He came down to Annapolis with all 
sorts of ideas about how the Regiment 
should be drilled — Washington High 
School Cadet ideas — but he quickly stuff- 
ed them in a laundry bag and the laundry 
lost them. 

As an athlete, the lad does quite well. 
He centers for the class football team and 
catches on the nine. He helps out the 
Ham'n Eggers, and is at home on the ten- 
nis court ; but — give him a pair of knick- 
ers, and his mashie-niblick, and Bill is in 
his dement. We knew that he could talk 
a mighty good game, but first class year 
he showed us that the long line had a 
good score on the end. 

Bill's inexhaustible patience and his 
good nature, which is always in a state 
of very dynamic stability, have made him 
a classmate with whom in the future we 
will all be glad to share our beans and

"Ike" "Harry" 

Athens, Georgia 

After journeying from Athens to 
Washington to make the world 
safe for democracy, Harry decided that 
his life had been too confined; so he join- 
ed the Navy to see the world. 

Hardly had Plebe year started when 
Harry became Ike, and undertook to break 
in his new "nom de plume." After a 
Plebe year spent exploring the tops of 
lockers, sitting on records, and testing 
the acoustics of the corridor with a Vic- 
trola, Ike started on a Youngster cruise. 

Plebe year, Sir Isaac found that drag- 
ging every so often without being caught 
by some all-knowing upper classman was 
a worth-while pastime. Upon becoming 
an upper classman, when dragging was 
within his rates, he no longer allowed 
himself to be taken by the charms of the 
fair sex. 

But with his sawiness and other for- 
givable vices, Harry is one of those 
whose friendship has gone a long way to 
make our four years at the Academy years 
to be cherished always in our memories.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 

After spending a year at Carnegie 
Tech, Walt left for some reason un- 
known, even to himself, and became a 
member of the class of '32. We are 
mighty glad that he made such a decision 
— it gave us the finest of classmates. 

Athletic inclinations were curbed by an 
unfortunate knee injury which occurred 
in Plebe year football, at the very out- 
set of his career. In spite of this handi- 
cap, he was a member of the Plebe wres- 
tling and lacrosse squads and since has 
participated in other sports. 

Academics never bothered him and, be 
it to his credit or otherwise, the fairer 
sex never caused him perceptible worry. 

Those of us who have had the privilege 
of really knowing Walt are indeed for- 
tunate. Level-headed, steady, reliable, the 
truest of friends, may convey an idea of 
the man he is to those who did not have 
that privilege. Walt's ideas and ideals 
aim for success and our slightest wish for 
him is just that — success in whatever he 
undertakes. If he does not choose to 
follow the sea, the Navy will lose a good 
officer and a thorough gentleman. 


"Ned' : "Scagem" 

Union, South Carolina 

From the corn lands of the South, 
Ned came forth to be one of the 
pampered pets. Why he left the Uni- 
versity of South Carolina, why he left a 
trail of broken hearts — we do not know, 
but we have enjoyed his companionship. 

Plebe steam had Ned on the ropes, but 
he staged a good comeback. The books 
haven't bothered him since, nor has he 
bothered the books a great deal. A 
pleasing smile, a lot of common sense, 
and a good word for all have won Ned 
a lot of friends and no enemies — al- 
though some are rather jealous of his 
powers. He really doesn't bother with 
the women — they bother him mostly. 

Of course, we all have our weakness, 
and he has his. He smokes Camel ciga- 
rettes, detests to write letters and is fond 
of his sleep. 

We can't look into the future and see 
what Ned will be, but it is a safe bet to 
say no matter where he goes he will be 
well liked. Four years haven't changed 
him much — he came to be an officer and 
a gentleman, but Ned was a gentleman 
long before he ever heard of the Naval

Omaha, Nebraska 

From the wild and woolly plains of 
Nebraska, Bill came to the Academy 
to proclaim that besides having the In- 
dians under control the men of the West 
are very adept at mastering the mysteries 
of the sea. Not all of Bill's navigation, 
however, is limited to the watery surfaces 
of the earth, as one is liable to find him, 
with leave only eight months away, draped 
over road maps of half of the country 
plotting the course for his next trip home. 

As an artist, he has few superiors in 
the Academy; his drawings appear regu- 
larly in the "Log." All the reward for 
his artistic ability, however, is not the 
satisfaction of seeing his efforts appreci- 
ated; the complimentary tickets received 
for designing posters for any and all 
kinds of shows are still another sort of 

In the years to come when the class of 
1932 looks back with fading memories at 
their four years spent together on the 
banks of the Severn, Bill will be able to 
clarify any questionable features ; his 
scrapbook will be a foundation on which 
a history of the class could well be writ-

"Gus" "Jake" "The Bird" 

Shamokin, Pennsylvania 

We've often wondered why all the 
Wennsylvania Wolunteers aspire 
towards a career of an Admiral in the 
Navy when they have a big state so full 
of wim, wigour and witality; well . . . 
Gus is one of the many who decided or 
maybe convinced himself that he was 
meant for the sea; so July 6, 1928, found 
him safely harbored at the Naval 

Plebe Summer he acquired the name 
of "Gus" as a result of his athletic activi- 
ties in wrestling, and it has since been 
adopted as his official "nom de plume" 
among classmates. A varsity wrestler 
his Plebe year, he was held back Young- 
ster and Second Class years by injuries. 

Novelists may take pages to describe 
characters but here we do it with a few 
magic yet self-explanatory phrases: will- 
ing, acquiescent, well versed, always 
cheerful no matter how cold the room is in 
winter, dances, drives a car (ask him what 
happened to it during Second Class 
Christmas leave), likes a good time! . . .

"Bill" "Tecumseh" "Bus" 

Baltimore, Maryland 

We just had to like Bill in spite of 
his home town, which was Balti- 
more. He was never too busy to help out a 
more wooden classmate or an under class- 
man, and there were plenty of them. Bill 
spent his leisure hours on the end of an 
oar and through conscientious hard work 
he landed himself a berth on the "Hun- 
dred and Fifty." 

"Our Bill" was never too regulation to 
engage in a bit of skylarking, as the pap- 
sheet shows, and on liberty or leave, wow ! 
Study, why, when you rate first and 
second sections anyway? Math was his 
long suit; and when anyone sought the 
solution to a particularly stiff problem, if 
he called on Bill, his search ended right 
then and there. 

Tecumseh spent quite a few hours 
composing letters to the "Oh so fair 
ones," and what luck? "Oh boy." But 
he tumbled and settled permanently to 
one. We wonder just how long the 
bereaved ones will have to do without 
him. We are sure that he will be back 
in circulation before long.

"Jim" "Bigler Boy" "Oswald" 
Gettysburg, Ohio 

From the home of the presidents he 
came, not to be a president, but one 
of those unfathomables, a midshipman. 
Starting off with a bang, he helped to 
make Plebe Summer memorable to all of 
us, but Youngster cruise he gained true 
fame as the sick seagull. All of which 
answers the famous question of why the 
H is a Marine? Second Class Sum- 
mer, well, there were a few things that 
he had forgotten two years before. As 
a full-fledged second classman, Oswald 
almost turned into a snake but he braced 
up in time. 

Sleep has been Jim's chief non-athletic 
activity, that is, when he wasn't writing 
letters; any M. C. can attest to his pro- 
ficiency at both. Studies were a minor 
worry, for when one can bring down that 
old 3.0 without the annoyance of books, 
he must look to other things. 

An all-around man, Jim has been a 
boxer these four years, with football or 
soccer during his rest periods. For he 
can't keep still, and that goes for studies 
and femmes as well as sports. When 
we look back on these four years we can 
say — well done, Jim!

"Bob" "Buffalo" "Beesse" 

Champaign, Illinois 

IN the first place, Bob is a man of the 
world. Maybe he hasn't been to Rus- 
sia yet, or Madagascar either, but it is 
quite safe to presume that he wouldn't 
feel lost in one or the other. Evidently 
he has lived in about half the states in 
the Union at some time or other. He 
tells strange tales of barracuda fishing in 
Florida and automobile racing in Illinois, 
cow punching in Texas and mule raising 
in Missouri. 

As for "gunboatin' on the Yangtze," 
well, that wasn't so successful. Bob had 
a little trouble with History Youngster 
year, but he ended up by tucking it away 
in fine style, and now with no more 
math to go unsat in, he's rolling along. 

And rolling means just that, too. Ever 
since Youngster September leave, he has 
been parading around with a rather large 
moment of inertia. Woe unto him who 
stands in the way of the chevalier of the 
flying hips. 

Bob is exceptionally good natured, and 
has made a lot of friends during the last 
four years. He even gets along well 
with the steam profs; but then, he's a 
steam savoir, so why shouldn't he?

"Diamond Dick" "Dick" 

Tyngsborough, Massachusetts 

Diamond Dick hails from Tyngs- 
borough, Massachusetts — some place 
in the near vicinity of Lowell. Dick 
Lambert, the fellow who plays the 
trumpet — thus he has been recognized and 
designated for four years. The NA Ten 
and Musical Clubs since the first jazz 
band of Plebe Summer have continued to 
occupy a large part of his time. In spite 
of this each fall and spring have found 
Dick out on the river pulling an oar. 

With most of his time spent with the 
Hell Cats, he missed a lot of good rifle 
toting, but gained fame in his own 
line. Not too frequent extra duty periods 
have somewhat served to make his ac- 
quaintance with Miss Springfield. Dick 
found sea duty so interesting that he en- 
joyed an extra cruise of some thirty days 
during Second Class Summer. 

We might add that he has great poten- 
tial possibilities as a snake — they all like 
him. In fact, we all do. Give him a 
juice prob or a radio that won't work 
and he's happy. More power to you,

"Wild Bill" "Henrie" "Cupie" 


Knoxville, Tennessee 

This, ladies and gentlemen, is "Henry" 
Brown, prominent clubman of Au- 
burn, Ossining, Atlanta and Knoxville, 
snapped by our photographer in an in- 
formal pose up in the Fourth Company, 
where he has been spending this and 
many other winters. He came from 'way 
down yonder, filled with a desire to get 
rich quick, but tries to deny that after he 
makes his fortune, say in eighty or ninety 
years, he's going to hire a regiment of 
mokes so he can be called "Colonel." 

For four years the weary workouts of 
the swimming team have been lightened 
by this portable sunshine in the man- 
agerial sweatshirt, and many a time and 
oft has the training table been lightened 
by this same sunshine (not so portable 
thereafter ) . 

When the tumult and the shouting die, 
and the classmates and what not depart, 
the thing we'll all remember is the num- 
ber of "first sections" he inhabited with 
a minimum of studying. Great success

"Harry Hume" 

Latrobe, Pennsylvania 

Every great institution of learning 
must have some mark that endears

that makes them value their fellowship 
with each other, some person or thing 
that they enjoy being near at all times. 
At the Naval Academy this great friend, 
this pleasant companion is — Smoke Park; 
and here during the hot tepid days' of 
spring, fall and summer may be seen 
Harry Hume, always resting, always bask- 
ing in the sunlight. 

But alas! — every great man must have 
his weakness; Harry has about as much 
chance keeping away from the fair sex as 
an elephant has of keeping away from 
peanuts. He (Harry) never fails to find 
some new girl to think of in his hours of 
sweet rest in Smoke Park. He has a 
wonderfully big heart, however, and 
there is room for all — but they are in

to see who reigns supreme.

Endowed by nature with a diminu-

Academy to find a splendid place await-

ous memory and an extreme fondness for 
Christmas leaves he has continued to fill 
that gap in that last squad, fourth platoon. 
Through four years he has staunchly 
maintained that academics are "fruit," and 
that cruises are a luxury. 

Having just completed a tour in the 
Merchant Marine, via Hamburg, his Plebe 
year and Youngster cruise passed in a 
serenity that has remained undisturbed. 
Although he has striven mightily for 
aquatic glory and even for a time en- 
deavored to assert his ability as a broad 
jumper, he has conscientiously avoided 

Numerous enduring friendships mark

has worked wonders with a roommate

tt-r-r t-ell, maybe that bell means that 
W we had better go some place." 
Thus for four years has Bob voiced his 
futile protest against the bells which seem 
to have the unhappy faculty of disturbing 
him just as he slides serenely into the arms 
of Morpheus. Despite an insatiable desire 
to remain dormant he has proved himself 
a scholar of no mean aptitude and aca- 
demics have held no terrors for him. But 
his energies are by no means limited to 
academic pursuits. The balmy days of 
spring find him covering himself with 
mud and glory on the lacrosse field except 
when his penchant for testing the bounc- 
ing qualities of 5-inch shells forces him 
to desist from his athletic activities. 

A firm believer in the old adage of 
safety in numbers, Bob has appeared at 
each hop with a new drag but has allow- 
ed none to occupy his thoughts. 

Youngster cruise brought out the best 
in him, as cruises will, and strengthened 
his desire to become one of "them there 
Marines." And the Marines' gain is our 
loss, for during his four years here he has 
proved himself a friend and pal.

"John L" "Chit" 

Massena, New York 

From the northern reaches of that In- 
dian territory known as the Grass 
River Country, located in the northern 
part of New York, John Lester has come 
forth from the town of Massena to carve 
out his naval career. With the advantages 
that can be gained from a post-graduate 
course in high school, John has come to 
test his abilities with the "cream of 
American youth." Maybe it is this ex- 
tensive preparation that has made the 
academic struggle so easy for him. 

In the time that we have known him, 
John has gained a place in our hearts as 
a friend. His customary smile brightens 
many a gathering of the wise where 
events of interest are discussed. His 
generosity and foresight make him one to 
whom the "snake" can turn in time of 
need. Cupid finally sank his arrow in 
the heart of John. It took him two years 
to do it and it looks as though it is a 
permanent job. The friendship and fel- 
lowship that we have known with John 
are the high lights of our stay at the 
Academy and we will always remember 
them with pleasure. 



Sprague, Washington 

Ruby hails from Walla Walla. After 
spending his youth in the wilds of 
Washington, he decided to see the world 
and found himself stranded in Crabtown 
without knowing why. He brought with 
him both his good and bad points. His 
bad habits are many, worst of which his 
capacity for consuming great quantities 
of chow, especially outside of the mess 
hall, and his maniacal delight in wreck- 
ing other people's rooms. These are 
quite overbalanced by his good habits, 
chief of which is his ability to indulge in 
silent and peaceful sleep. It is then that 
Ruben is at his best. 

The lure of the cinders crept in Ruby's 
blood as a Plebe and it is there that he 
divests himself of his surplus energy. He 
gained fame in the quarter Plebe year and 
did still better Youngster year. His fu- 
ture is even brighter. 

A staunch friend's loyal comrade, Ruby 
is well liked by all who know him and 
the memory of his friendship will always 
be a pleasure.

this auburn-haired classmate of ours. 
After a decade or so of living as a red- 
blooded he-man in the back woods of the

to conquer. The wide sea appeared as a 
suitable opponent, so Red hied himself 
to the Severn to learn the ways of the

one might hope to meet, he quickly made 
everlasting friendships with his easy-go- 
ing and good-natured ways. Pinky easily 
traversed the trials of Plebe year, at 
the end of which he pronounced "fruit." 
His ready talent as an entertainer will 
long be remembered by those who have 
gone before and those who are to fol- 
low. With a winning personality, he has 
been a port of refuge to "we woodens." 
A naturally active nature would not be 
contented with a membership in the Radi- 
ator Club. Consequently, "the mighty" 
is a familiar figure around the gym.

"Well, tomorrow's lessons are fruit; 
we can bone them between breakfast and

he having been one of the Plebe team and

Coming to us from the West via the

one of those individuals who, having 
looked at their lessons once, can say 
"fruit," and then show us how easy it is. 
North Dakota's loss is our gain. 

Tall, dignified, and good natured, our 
Francis always has a smile to offer, even 
when his own troubles and woes bear 
down upon him. 

While the rest of us were dry land 
cruising during Second Class Summer, 
Noz pulled a fast one on us and added 
some more time to his "days at sea." Al- 
though his ship — the Reina — was off the 
bottom only when it rained, Noz is now 
the saltiest of the salts. 

As a letter man on an Intercollegiate 
Championship gym team, he has shown 
us that his interests have extended in 
more than one direction. He likes other 
kinds of letters, too. The mailman stops 
at his door quite often, and when "that 
letter" arrives he gives a contented 
chuckle and retires behind a dense fog 
to read it. Fortunate indeed will be those 
who can call him shipmate when we are 
scattered throughout the fleet.

HE never says anything about it him-

the ambition to be a Midshipman and

Squad. But maybe he doesn't know what 
he has missed. 

Scotty has one ambition which tops all 
the rest — to be an electrical engineer. The 
gusto with which he socks all the juice 
exams gives us a hunch that his serious- 
ness and his savviness are going to land 
him at his goal in short order. We have 
no doubt that in a few years we'll all be 
proud to be able to throw out our chests 
and say, "We knew him way back 
when ."

New Orleans, Louisiana 

The cheery visage you see smiling 
benignly upon you is none other 
than that of S. S. (The Great) Labouisse. 
Sam's first effort as a ward of Uncle Sam's 
was a trifle disastrous when the Feb. 
tree came up, but undaunted, he returned 
and '31's loss was '32's gain. 

Chief's friends and Chief's fame are 
legion. It is said that if a satisfactory 
means could be found of writing his voice 
with Joe E. Brown's oral cavity radio 
would be a dead industry. If you needed 
it, Chief would cheerfully give you his 
last shirt or his only dollar. His 
eternally buoyant spirit and flutelike tenor 
have helped make the fourth deck a more 
cheerful place. 

Athletically, his abilities in that gentle 
brand of mayhem known as intercompany 
basketball helped in no small way the 
fourth company to win the regimental 
championship. In his halcyon days he 
was no mean harrier as a "32" will at- 

Afloat or ashore, right side up or sink- 
ing, Chief will always be remembered as 
a true shipmate.

"Dan" "LaGoth" 

Tamaqua, Pennsylvania 

We have with us above, in this 
Rogue's Gallery, number 1654, 
commonly known among his little play- 
mates as "the Goth." 

As men of the Navy, as well as of the 
Legion, do not ask questions, we are in 
ignorance of the reasons for his de- 
parture from "somewhere in Pennsyl- 
vania." Enough. 

His seduction, by old college chums, to 
our most excellent club, the Radiator, took 
place at an early age, although it is true 
he manages to elude their clutching fin- 
gers long enough each spring to keep up 
in his rifle and pistol shooting. 

As water off a tin roof, so his affairs 
of the heart. Yet have we to see him 
pale at the sight of a telegram, or a 
feminine epistle, though behind him at 
Carvel Hall and other dens of our fair 
city are left multitudinous bills, broken 
hearts, and what not. 

In the future we may expect anything 
from Dan. He may not follow the sea 
with the rest of us, but what e'er betide, 
whether Admiral or not, he will always 
be to us boys all there, and one of the

ell, shiver my timbers." This 
is the usual way that Bob 
enters the room and grabs his three letters 
after knocking down a cold forty at the 
first hour recitation. 

Words haven't sufficient force to de- 
scribe this handsome, well-mannered, 
gracious young man who donned the blue 
and gold four years ago. All Baltimore 
is proud of their "local boy" who is mak- 
ing good. 

Robert is more than just good looking. 
It takes but a minute of observation to 
see that he is conscientious and hard 
working plus many other things that go 
to make up his wonderful character. 

In athletics, Bob stood far from the 
well-known Radiator Club and though he 
did not make the varsity, the class always 
found him one of the first to turn out 
and fight for the Harvard Shield. 

Those of us who know him, and there 
are few who do not, have but little doubt 
that to him will come the fruits deserved 
by one so upright, loyal and true; and 
above all, one with spirit, perseverance, 
and will to win! 


"Hop" "Tom" 

Annapolis, Maryland 

Any attempt to describe Hop adequate- 
ly in the few words to which we are 
limited is bound to be futile and result in 
being insufficient to> do him justice. This 
is primarily due to the fact that his per- 
sonality is made of so many different and 
almost conflicting characteristics. 

Upon meeting him the first thing that 
strikes one is his cheerfulness and interest 
— no matter what the occasion may be. 
One of Hop's outstanding characteristics 
is his vigor. His football and lacrosse 
indicate that his athletic career would 
undoubtedly have reached the greatest of 
heights if he had not had continually 
to fight with the academic departments. 
He is always ready to go through and 
there is a certain strength radiated by him 
that soon convinces one of his resolute 

Four years with a man is enough to say 
with some accuracy that Hop does not 
have a single selfish motive in his make- 
up. His personality is pleasant, his char- 
acter irreproachable; consequently, he has 
made many friends who all are sincere in 
wishing him the success he merits.

"H. A." 

Augusta, Georgia 

Those who know insist that Hinton 
never cracked a smile before the ripe 
age of four. At that time the explosion 
at a munition depot so amused him 
that this marvelous record was broken. 
Be that as it may, in the time since, only 
the privileged have seen that famous 
smirk, and those who have heard his 
laugh are members of a most select group 

The Owens is one of Georgia's natural 
wonders worthy of classification with Ty 
Cobb, Bobby Jones, and peaches. He 
stands ready to inform you of this too, 
interspersing his eulogy with pungent 
observations anent General Sherman and 
all others who wore the blue in '61. 

He sprang full-mouthed into our midst 
direct from the service and Tia Juana, his 
affections centering around the latter. 
Promptly he gained the notice of the 
powers that be by his method of wearing 
a hat. 

In spite of these troubles and his sol- 
emn face his good nature is constant and 
makes amends for anything else. The 
result is a slightly temperamental but 
staunch friend and is quite satisfactory. 


"Sammy" "S. H." 

Rockford, Michigan 

IF you have anything to say against 
Michigan or the Middle West, don't 
say it around Sammy or you will find 
yourself drawn into a hopeless debate by 
one who has at his command a staggering 
array of facts. This knowledge is not 
bound by geographical limits but has an 
extent of the world at large and includes 
the studies of all of the arts. His range 
of reading is immense — the envy of most 
of us who know him. Athletic partici- 
pation and the restricted course outlined 
for him have given way before his aca- 
demic pursuits, but at almost any time 
he has been able to adjust his marks at 

At most any moment during the day, 
you will find him taking the floor in a 
large "bull session" entertaining every 
one with his unusual personality and stub- 
bornness which is really humorous. 

He is intensely interesting and has 
drawn about him a circle of good friends, 
who appreciate his company and wish him 
every success.

"Bill" "Billy" 

Catlettsburg, Kentucky 

IT is surmised that a Fox News Reel 
was responsible for Bill's decision to 
become a midshipman. He couldn't re- 
sist the life of a midshipman as depicted 
on the screen. After spending a year at 
George Washington University getting a 
collegiate atmosphere, Bill reached the 
conclusion that white works would suit 
him better than Oxford bags — for four 
years anyway. 

Bill is a confirmed Red Mike except 
on the days that he rates liberty. His 
letters come from almost every state in 
the Union but he seems to be interested 
most in those from Kentucky. 

A flattened nose and an occasional 
black eye lead us to think that Spike 
Webb is involved. Quite correct; but 
don't let the battle scars mislead you. The 
other fellow usually sees a few gloves 
too. Academically, there is not much to be 
said. Not a star man, not wooden nor lazy ; 
just a case of too many outside activities. 
As a shipmate Bill can be given an un- 
reserved O. K, and we are sure he will 
make good out in the fleet as he has done 
here at the Academy. 


"Bill" "Venus" 

Annapolis, Maryland 

From Annapolis paper, summer of 1928: 


VV popular member of the younger 
set of this city, today reported to the 
Naval Academy, passed his physical ex- 
amination, and was sworn in as a Mid- 
shipman, U. S. N. Mr. Vanous has a 
host of friends around Annapolis and we 
predict that he will be quite successful 
during his Academy career, both aca- 
demically and in the art of making 
friends, an art at which he has always ex- 

That's Bill — and the paper was right, 
too. He got in, and what's more, he 
stayed in — easily. A tendency to dis- 
regard textbook methods has kept him 
from the grades that might have been his 
but academics have never worried him. 

His athletic activities have been limited 
to cross-country and rope climbing, both 
unofficial. Maybe that is why he sleeps 
most every afternoon? ? ? 

His individuality and rare humor have 
won him many staunch friends and they 
are certain to do so for the rest of his 
days. He has been a perfect classmate 
and is sure to be a welcome addition to 
the fleet.

"Tom" "Hotshot" "T. D. F." 

Dorchester, Massachusetts 

Tom is everything that a real shipmate 
should be. A hard worker, his same 
genial self, he has gathered a host of 
friends about him. Even the innumerable 
lists this lad is forever confronting us 
with have not altered the course of true 

Tom's ten activities are a measure of 
his versatility. Occasionally he finds time 
to study, that is if he has the daily letter 

The Navy is a love with Hotshot. Try 
knocking it sometime and you will re- 
ceive a real lesson in Naval Tradition and 
seafaring life. Submarines are his chosen 
field. The undersea fleet will gain its 
greatest champion when Tom reaches it. 
"It's only a short jump from the Eagle- 
boats anyway," is the way he explains it; 
and if you do not know the inner and 
outer workings of these crafts, you do 
not live in the Second Batt. 

A fourth at bridge — never; but sug- 
gest a hike and you have come to the 
right place. Tom is a real pal and a 
perfect roommate. This Boston boy has 
made a splendid beginning on what can 
only be a successful career. 


"Jay Bee Don" 
Brockton, Massachusetts 

A man with an ideal has to have com- 
mon sense if he is to maintain his 
balance. Jay Bee has both. His popu- 
larity attests to his balance. We all know 
that the Navy is his ideal. The common 
sense must be there. The class knows 
that it is. 

At no time does he show his love for 
the Service as he does on a cruise. Young- 
ster Cruise, there wasn't a happier man in 
the Squadron. Up on deck or down in the 
fireroom. Don didn't care. He was on 
a man-of-war. Nothing else mattered. 
Not that he didn't like his liberty — he 
was ashore with the first boat and aboard 
with the last one. But when he was 
aboard, he did his job whether it was 
bright work or notebook work, and did 
it well. You have to love the sea to do 
bright work well. 

Selection boards will never worry him. 
His is a natural aptitude for the Service 
that the future molders will recognize. 
'29, '30 and '31 know his Service reputa- 
tion to be high. Those who went before 
cannot be long in realizing the same

"Benny" "Bob" 

Greensboro, North Carolina 

Oh, we met that man from the South. 
Instead of chewing a cigar he was 
the proverbial fair-headed boy with the 
Pepsodent smile. 

The birds were singing merrily and the 
leaves on the trees were a verdant green. 
Benny said, "Gee, what a great place." 
So he unpacked his bag and decided to 
stick around for a while. 

The Math Department tried to talk him 
out of the idea during the course of his 
second year, but he still maintained he 
liked our noble institution too well to 
leave just then, and he proved he was 

Only a select few have ever heard him 
pour out his vituperations against things 
which have for some reason gained his 
disfavor, but they can assure you that if 
he doesn't like a thing he doesn't like it. 

The ladies, always the ladies. A dreamy 
stare into blank space doesn't mean he is 
trying to figure out that prob he missed 
in the last class. Don't get Benny wrong. 
He is just trying to plan how soon he can 
have his fair one over to see him again. 


"Mike" "Dwigbt" 

Washington, D. C. 

From the battlefields of the "tea fights" 
the local hero came. He came, he 
saw, he conquered. Over all obstacles, 
stubborn academics, blackmail, and pap 
sheets, he surmounted with the tenacity 
of an Irish terrier.

squad may double time and overtime but

To one part Montreal add two parts 
life in the Rockies, two parts Navy 
environment, and a pinch of salt. Mix 
well. The result is somewhat different 
than you ever experienced before, and 
something to look forward to. Rol is 
neither the product of a section nor an 
organization. He can tell you about the 
Canadian girls, the Western girls, the 
Eastern girls, and the European girls with 
equal fluency. And he knows whereof 
he speaks. He is one of those persons 
with the ability of enjoying himself un- 
der practically any circumstance and at 
the same time making it interesting and 
pleasant for those around him. He has 
a mind of his own and an individuality as 
attractive as it is forceful. In his con- 
versation — perhaps his favorite pastime — 
one feels the results of both experience 
and thought. He is bound by no con- 
stricted views or opinions, but rather takes 
a broad outlook on life, and makes no 
pretence to that which he has not. It 
is these qualities which place him far in 
advance toward that ideal of our earthly 
existence to which love and success are 
only means — happiness.

"Rufe" "Bud" 

New Bedford, Massachusetts 

From the port of tall ships and strong 
men came Rufe with a smile on his 
lips and a chanty in his heart. His child- 
hood on the bleak shores of New Bed- 
ford combined with his early sailoring fit- 
ted him well for the Academy. Possessed 
of a good mind which has kept him near 
the top in his studies, he developed his 
body by pulling an oar with the hundred 
and fifties ; being slightly short in 
stature kept him out of the first boat, but 
many is the time he has stroked the 

Dragging from the four corners of the 
earth, Rufe has shown the Library to a 
large assortment of girls. He, however, 
invariably must have several days in which 
to recuperate after a strenuous week-end. 

Retaining his New England accent, he 
claims that the English language is spoken 
incorrectly everywhere south of Connecti- 
cut. Never quite so much at home as 
when giving his impression in some bull 
session, he usually has something of im- 
portance to say. 

In future pilotings there is no doubt 
that Rufe will sail his ship through all 
the rocks and shoals safely into port.

"Slap" "Van" 

Flint, Michigan 

SLAP joined the rest of his classmates 
here sometime during June, '28, fresh 
from that institution of higher learning 
— Flint Junior College of Flint, Michigan. 
All of his life Van has had an unbridled 
passion for the sea and the navy. When 
a mere youth, after having read the life 
of "J. P. Jones," Van fell overboard and 
thus nearly terminated a great naval 
career. With such enthusiasm, it is not 
unusual that we find him way up near 
the top of his class. A rare combination 
of mathematical genius and common 
sense, our hero has been in the first sec- 
tions ever since Plebe year. Selfish? I 
should say not! Every evening he could 
be engaged in some indoor sport or 
pounding his ear, you will find Slap sur- 
rounded by ten or twelve unsats (the 
wife included) explaining dynamics of 
a rigid body or integrating ex dx. 

Not confining his efforts to purely 
scholastic endeavors alone, Van earned a 
place on the cross country training table 
second class year and has been going 
strong ever since. 


Annapolis, Maryland 

WHEN Loke came to this govern- 
ment boarding school, Crabtown 
welcomed back one of its most promis- 
ing young men, a popular wide-awake 
gentleman who was well known in the 
field of athletic endeavor. Outboard 
motorboating was his hobby, but Locus 
the Focus found time to excel in many 
other lines. Indeed, one of his most out- 
standing characteristics is his versatility. 
Along with his other activities, Loke 
played basketball, boxed, swam and ran. 
As an example of his versatility, he blew 
a smoke ring the first time that he tried. 

Loke might have become a savoir but 
he always believed that the anchor sec- 
tion was the best because he did not have 
so far to go to formation and that is cer- 
tainly logical enough. 

A rare combination of natural ability 
and energetic determination enabled Loke 
to come through with the results when- 
ever he started anything. If he doesn't 
become a naval aviator, we expect to hear 
of him as a successful designer and 
manufacturer of outboard motorboats.

Charlotte, North Carolina 

Folks — here is a man — a man in 
every sense of the word. Webster 
could have adequately lauded his self- 
discipline, his point-blank honesty, his 
perfectly functioning set of ideals and the 
rest of those traits that go to make up the 
Whitey that we know. We cannot do 
that but we can say — he is a man. 

When this tow-headed Southerner first 
heaved into sight in the summer of '28, 
with his guitar under his arm and a 
gleam of warm friendship in his eye, we 
put our okay on him without further ado. 
To him Youngster Cruise was just an in- 
teresting experience, and we all learned 
that we were in for the fun if we went 
ashore with him, in Barcelona, London, 
Norfolk, or anywhere. Aviation sum- 
mer was much to his liking and we found 
that if the Navy sees fit to give him a 
pair of wings, the Bureau of Aeronautics 
is headed for success. 

We've enjoyed these last four years 
with Whitey — working, playing, laugh- 
ing, groaning, and irking with him — 
four long years, and we are all hoping to

Houston, Texas 

'^""pATER" galloped across the Ap- 
J_ palachian Highland with a little 
"battleship busting" in view in the stead 
of the famed bronco busting of his domi- 
cile. As he entered the gate of this 
enormous corral on the banks of the 
Severn he realized that there were many 
wild ponies to be ridden. He tossed his 
chaps aside, donned the Navy blue and 
gold, and with the song, "The Eyes of 
Texas Are Upon You" on his lips, set 
out to tackle the biggest with the best. 

Plebe year passed along smoothly 
enough and June Week found him "Tater 
like" dragging the fairest of the fair. 
Then three months at sea and the boy 
was more than ready to steer for home. 
At the beginning of second class summer 
Tate took over a company and the next 
two years treated him as well. He won 
the highly coveted and responsible posi- 
tion of Lucky Bag Business Manager and 
proved to be, aside from a born leader, 
a gentleman, and a son of the sea, a very 
capable business man. 

As a boy he is the best playmate possi- 
ble; as a man he's among the world's 
finest, ever full of diplomacy and the 
ability to put across what he thinks right.

Washington, D. C. 

WHEN this tall, straight, and fairly 
blonde young man was at the ten- 
der age of two, he decided to come to the 
Naval Academy. It is quite natural, there- 
fore, that we find him some sixteen years 
later, donning the unbleached white 
works — the symbol of a brand new Plebe. 

From the very beginning, King has 
played the game in a one hundred per 
cent way. His enthusiasm, energy and 
personality have made him active in many 
fields other than the academic. Tennis 
and the Hop Committee have each claim- 
ed large portions of his time. 

King has three outstanding hobbies: 
tennis, beautiful ladies, and entertaining. 
Of the first, nothing need be said to any- 
one who has seen his eyes brighten at the 
sound of a smashing forehand drive. Of 
the second, we can do no more than ask 
you to go back with us to any Saturday 
night when escorting privileges were 
granted and to notice the charming com- 
pany that he invariably kept. Of the

"Willie" "Bill" 

Ackerman, Mississippi 

One day his father called him in from 
his favorite haunts where he spent 
much time in hunting, fishing, and 
"courtin' " to ask him his ideas on go- 
ing to college. A year in Mississippi Col- 
lege gave him the thought that perhaps 
engineering might be quite the thing — 
hence a year at A. & M. Not satisfied 
with the easy-going life of a Southern 
college student "Willie" finally suc- 
cumbed to the insistent, far-reaching call 
of the sea. 

Bill as a Plebe was a problem to the 
upper classmen — as an upper classman has 
been a problem to the Plebes ever since. 
His first year he aspired to the glory of 
a potential center on the football team 
only a short time later to become the 
hope of the wrestling team. Feeling that 
these achievements were easily attainable, 
he heeded the call of the little sailing 
boats, the squash and tennis courts, not to 
speak of the Radiator Club with its many 
distractions, among them the harmony 
so characteristic of the boy we know so

Spokane, Washington 

DID you ever notice those men about 
the ship who spend most of their 
time polishing brass buttons and buckles, 
cleaning rifles, and standing an occasional 
watch at the "skipper's" or the "exec's" 
cabin? Here's one of them. He won't 
deny it, for he's rather proud to be an 
ex-Marine in spite of having to learn the 
Navy's favorite version of that famous 
Marines' Hymn as a "plebe." 

Though the "devil dog's" greatest 
enemies are supposed to be sailors, he 
found a new adversary when he met 
Dago. Whether he took an aversion to 
Spanish in his experience in Panama or 
whether he just found it hard we do not 
know. But if it was the former, he sure- 
ly overcame that in Spain. If it was the 
latter, we can say he overcame it too, for 
he put Dago in the same class with the 
rest of his subjects. Second class year 
found him opening a book occasionally, 
but he seemed to find little necessity for 
even doing that. After all a Marine's 
claim to recognition is not his linguistic 
accomplishments, but his ability to fight. 
He can do that. 


"Chaplain" "Schmaltz" "Schultzie" 
Bay City, Michigan 

Saginaw Bay must have prompted the 
urge that caused "Schultzie" to go 
"down to the sea in ships." The Navy, 
however, could not break him of his 
savoir instincts. He has always stood at 
the top, or very near the top, of his class 
in spite of all the Academic Departments 
and his "wives." 

It was greatly feared at first that Floyd 
might end his career as a Naval Con- 
structor, but we are beginning to have 
hopes that the line may claim him yet. 
There are dire forebodings that he may 
eventually skipper one of Uncle Sam's 

Although not an athlete, he has in- 
dulged in a variety of sports; it is even 
whispered that he is a golf pro. He 
almost broke his back at the end of a 
Plebe crew oar; so he took up canoeing 
instead — it doesn't interfere with drag- 

Old pal, when you are out in the fleet 
or building warships, remember that we 
all have a hallowed spot in our memories, 
dedicated to the best of "wives" and a 
true friend.

"Tecumseh" "Senator" "Dan" 

Melbourne, Arkansas 

"TT take me up about ten minutes be- 

VV fore formation," characteristic 
words of this broadly smiling, easy-going, 
beatific son of the Southland. Raised 
on hominy grits and razorback po'k, he 
astounded the greybeards of the Uni- 
versity of Arkansas with his grasp of 
learning. Having seen and done every- 
thing in Arkansas, he heard of a won- 
derful place in the East, where young 
gentlemen are educated at government 
expense. Avidly pursuing the new sen- 
sation, Baxter came, and conquered with 
his invincible good nature. 

His smile is the significant feature of

Life is a series of ups and downs for

"Ike' "Bill" 

Chicago, Illinois 

FOUR short years ago the "City of the 
Big Shoulders" lost one of its most 
promising young citizens. Chicago's 
loss was the Navy's gain. 

If still water runs deep, then Bill must 
have depths at which we may only guess, 
as he is never demonstrative. Probably 
only a few of his more intimate friends 
have learned that here is a wise and 
tolerant student of humanity who is able 
to soften his criticisms with choice wit. 

Academics have never held any terrors 
for "Ike." Had not the lure of a good 
book or magazine been so often appeal- 
ing, he might easily have starred. By 
dint of sheer natural ability he has been 
able to stand well up in his class. 

At various times Bill has tried his 
hand at football, boxing, and track, but 
swimming is his own true love. When 
the days began to lengthen he could be 
found in the pool every night, religiously 
seeking perfection. 

Whether Ike stays in the Service or 
seeks his fortune in the world, we predict 
fortune and happiness for him.

"Dick" "Bennie" 

Butte, Montana 

After deciding in favor of a Navy 
career and spending a few years in 
ardent preparation, Dick came through 
Number Three Gate that momentous 
morning full of hope, ambition and plans 
for big things. 

In retrospect, these past four years 
haven't been the easiest in Dick's life; 
but, as they have been filled with fight, 
determination, and the will to win, the re- 
sult has been inevitable. Dick's time has 
been filled with a variety of things that 
make for a well-rounded existence. 
Academics, athletics, and the company of 
the fairer sex all have had their place. 
His exuberance and vitality almost over- 
whelm us at times. He is ready for any- 
thing at any time, and his ready wit and 
repartee keep us all on our toes every 
minute from reveille to taps and some- 
times after. Combined with all this he 
has the right amount of common sense 
to make for a well proportioned life. 

We who know him are confident that 
the boy will succeed despite any obstacle, 
and we join in wishing him the best of 


"Sugar Babe" "Rose" 

Portland, Oregon 

Straightway from Portland he came 
with a fresh beaming smile bestow- 
ing upon all the aroma of good nature 
and friendliness. Without hesitation 
"Babe" and his smile entered the 
Academy, for they recognized their mis- 
sion in life. The smile paved the way for 
a successful career while "Babe" follow- 
ing close on its heels was building a 
staunch foundation. 

Unpretentious, "Babe" is one of the 
naturally "savvy." To the aid of all Math, 
Steam, and Juice parties he came and 
checked the answers in the books. Dime 
novels and Western stories became his 
obsessions and only when they or his 
daily "specials" were encroached upon 
did a frown displace his smile. 

"Babe" is indispensable as an arbitra- 
tor in arguments concerning the Navy — 
he knows his Navy from sea to sea. It is 
his pride and glory and he derives as 
much pleasure from it as he does from 
forming generalities. If one can put 
up with this and it is not hard, one finds 
him otherwise quiet and unobtrusive, 
two lovable and highly desirable qualities 
which place him as the perfect room-

"Pop" "Vorp" 

Laramie, Wyoming 

A true son of Wyoming, Pop came 
to us from the land of the high 
wooded mountains and crystal streams. 
His first year at the Academy was spent 
amidst varying degrees of fortune and 
misfortune until the latter finally won, 
by a mean trick of fate. It was with 
great sorrow that '31 was forced to give 
him up and with open arms that '32 re- 
ceived him. 

An athlete of no mean ability — if it 
so pleases him to be such. Swimming 
first claimed his attention, but his inter- 
est soon turned to Lacrosse, in which his 
success would have been unlimited, but 
for a knee injury sustained early in 
Youngster year. Pop has been like a 
father to us for four years, and more 
than once his fatherly advice has turned 
us from the path of wrong-doing to that 
of righteousness. 

With his foot on a table and a skag 
in his lips, with a fluent line of conver- 
sation that never tires, and a listener who 
will allow himself to be browbeaten by 
remaining passive, we have a perfect pic- 
ture of Pop that we will never forget.

"Strkk" "Son' "Albie" "Bobby" 
Enid, Oklahoma 


trick came to us from '31. Their loss 
was our gain, and a real gain it is. 
Strick hails from Enid, Oklahoma, and 
if Enid feels the same way about him 
that we do they must have been sorry 
to see him leave his native heath. They 
should be perpetually proud of a product 
like Strick, and no doubt they are. 

Strick is one of our staunchest support- 
ers of baseball. Every game, be the 
weather foul or fair, will find him in 
the stands lending his moral support to 
the team and ready with plenty of ex- 
pert (?) advice. Though baseball is 
his first love he supports all athletics 
to the best of his ability. 

Strick has graced the afternoon swim- 
ming squad since Plebe year and his 
manful efforts find plenty of apprecia- 
tion in the large audience that never 
fails to gather when he makes his ap- 
pearance in the pool. 

Strick is a man of strong character and 
generous impulses, a true friend and a 
delightful companion. 

Here's luck to you, Strick, and may we 
all be shipmates with you in the future.

"Shovie" "Paul" 

Clearfield, Pennsylvania 

Pennsylvania lost a good volunteer 
when Shovie decided that sailing 
would be preferable to coal-mining, and 
we all agree that the Academy gained 
by his choice. Plebe year found him busy 
trying to convince the Math Department 
that he wanted to stay here; but still he 
found time for two sports, with dragging 
a third. However, the following years 
offered no great difficulties, enabling 
him to devote more time to athletics. 
That he met with success in these lines 
may be seen by the N's he has earned. 

Shovie has such a lazy and carefree 
manner that those who do not know him 
sometimes fail to recognize his real abil- 
ity. But a man who can devote the great- 
er part of his study hours to reading and 
still fool the Academic Departments, who 
can stay on the excused squad most of 
the time, and still make N's, who can 
drag a couple of Crabs at the same time 
and make them like it must have rare 

As Shovie leaves for the Fleet, we wish 
him the best of luck. We know that he 
will make an excellent officer. 


"Ennis" "Walt" 

Clarendon, Texas 

Some twenty-three years ago this bright 
young chap blinked into the mysteries 
of this life and has since been wonder- 
ing what it is all about. Perhaps this 
explains the arrival at the middle of each 
term of a note from the superintendent, 
which begins, "The superintendent notes 
with concern. ..." However, when the 
final marks came in he had through 
strenuous efforts managed to satisfy the 
Academic Departments with at least a 

Those who have formed their ideas 
of Texans from books were much sur- 
prised at Walt's quiet and dignified de- 
meanor. He isn't an athlete and we 
don't seem to remember him as a strip- 
er, but we find there are few men of 
better judgment and more common sense 
among the star men of this class. Mod- 
est in manner, his idler moments are 
spent in swimming (sub-squad) , sailing, 
or reading rather than in social pursuits. 

Ennis comes to us from the service 
and when we send him back it is with 
the greatest confidence that the rest of 
his career will be as successful as the

"Rosie" "Red" 

Grafton, Illinois 

From Mississippi to the sea describes 
the life of Rosie to perfection. Acad- 
emy rings from their early beginning 
have borne his family crest and it was 
his ambition and tradition to carry on 
the good work. A little preliminary 
work at Hall's and a Plebe Summer made 
a Midshipman of Rosie, and despite a 
few battles with the 20-20 chart on the 
fourth deck, he is still firmly set on the 
course to a commission. 

Academically, he has fallen in at the 
head of the column for quite some time, 
seemingly without much difficulty, and 
still has time left over for Company soc- 
cer in the Fall, track in the Spring, and 
a letter or two in the evening. 

As a roommate, Rosie has been the 
best of friends, and when it comes to 
arranging week-ends he's a man to know. 
As a Midshipman he qualifies among the 
best, and to his future life at sea or 
ashore Levering will carry the best tra- 
ditions of an officer and a gentleman. 



Wortham, Texas 

AN insatiable curiosity being a trait 
of character, and quite a commend- 
able one, of our young Texan, and he 
having further an honest desire to follow 
the intricate paths of higher learning, it 
was quite natural that he gave up his 
idea of Chemical Engineering to investi- 
gate Uncle Sam's course in Naval Science. 

A memory and intelligence quite above 
the average coupled with the running 
start that a college year gave him made 
it possible for "Tex" to investigate many 
other fields than those prescribed by the 
"Ac" departments. 

Though to many of us the Gym is not 
a particularly attractive place it has a 
peculiar attraction for Leverett and as a 
result his name is known and respected 
by almost as many horsemen as there are 
in the Intercollegiate Gymnasium League. 
The same painstaking care and persis- 
tence has brought him recognition in the 
field of music and incidentally quite a 
few occasions to answer to "All those 
excused from drill, report to Batt office 
and initial the list."

' "5/7/" 
Greenville, Kentucky 

Somewhere in Kentucky will be found 
the small town of Greenville, which 
was far too small for this ambitious son 
of the South. With all the optimism of 
youth, Bill entered the Navy as an Ap- 
prentice Seaman with the express purpose 
of finding a career in the Navy through 
the Naval Academy, and by hard work 
he has realized his ambitions. 

Through the maze of four years of the 
eternal grind he has fought his way, 
moulding into one all the traditions of 
the Navy. Bill is not one of those bril- 
liant academic stars, nor is he athletically 
inclined. He is more of the quiet, peace- 
ful type, with a marked personality. His 
straightforwardness, earnestness, and sin- 
cerity have won him many friends who 
greatly admire and respect his cjuiet 
Southern dignity. 

William Crawford Jcnson now stands 
on the threshold of a Naval career, a 
friend to be admired, an enemy to be 
respected, and with best wishes of us all.

"Earl" "E. 77' 

Piqua, Ohio 

"t 'll argue with you on that question 

JL all night," — a characteristic state- 
ment of Earl's which brings to our minds 
memories of many pleasant hours we 
have spent discussing the pros and cons 
of numerous subjects. It takes a good 
man to equal Earl in an argument, and 
as far as beating him goes — well, it just 
isn't done. He can always find a loop- 
hole somewhere. 

Earl comes from the old "Buckeye 
State," and spends quite a bit of his spare 
time in fond reveries of home and the 
leaves he has spent in dear old 
Ohio. When leave is granted he leaves 
for home just as soon as possible 
and returns with the accuracy of an effi- 
ciency expert. 

Academics have always been "fruit" 
for Earl, although some of the mathe- 
matical subjects' have troubled him at 
times, but never seriously. 

Never too busy to explain a knotty

"Ed" "Count" 

Westwood, New Jersey 

One summer day this blonde-haired 
chap left his native haunts to answer 
the call of the sea. From the first days 
of Plebe Summer were his numerous 
talents shown, and everyone realized that 
here was a man among men. Academics 
are Ed's delight; each month Tecumseh 
smiles upon him and knows him as a 
favorite son. Is he savvy? Just ask some 
of the wooden ones who is bringing light 
into the darkness of their academic strug- 

New Jersey is the home of many an 
illustrous one, and "Ruck" is a true son 
of the state. Of course, we cannot pre- 
sume to proclaim him another Edison, 
but the "Count" will have no trouble 
etching his name in the sands of time. 

His disposition is truly as sunny as the 
glint of his hair; when things start to 
go wrong, Ed never hesitates to cheer 
one over the rough spots. As for the 
fair sex, ah — the eyes are sparkling, for 
"Ruck" is not averse to feminine charms. 

As you leave the Academy and Severn 
days become memories, Ed. we salute 
you — the best of luck.

Charleston, South Carolina 

From Charleston, a city full of tra-

came this young man, full of ambition 
and desirous of reaching the heights in 
the Naval profession. Hard work 
claimed him immediately, and he buckled 
down with vim and vigor, and something 
of vitality, intent upon getting the better 
of the Academic Departments, regardless 
of time and effort required. So, we have 
our hero endowed with persevering qual- 
ities, a most conscientious worker when 
there's work to be done. 

Mac possesses a stubborn good na- 
ture, the stubbornness of which some-

none better, none truer; his generosity 
sometimes amounts almost to a fault . . .

Fort Worth, Texas 

Texas may seem to most persons to be 
one region which would be least 
likely to produce enthusiastic mariners, 
but it is a surprising fact that the Navy 
can boast of many natives of that state 
among its best men. Hugh comes from 
there, and as for being enthusiastic about 
the Service — well, he has lived for noth- 
ing else ever since coming to the Acad- 

He has pursued his way during our 
time at the Academy almost totally un- 
touched by academic trouble. Efficient 
enough in this work, his worries, such 
as they are (even these don't seem to 
bother him much, though) have been 
caused by — well, we won't say, but if 
you could see the industrious way in 
which he spends his time writing long, 
and we feel sure, interesting, letters, you 
might be able to tell the answer. These 
letters seem to be all addressed to one 
certain person who lives quite far away. 
Athletically speaking, Hugh has found 
boxing most interesting, with track and 
class football to occupy the other seasons. 



Florence, South Carolina 

Wilbur, the pride of the Third Batt. 
Radiator Club, is one of those fel- 
lows one hears about but seldom meets — a 
real friend and a true pal. Hailing from 
the hotbed of secession, he has neverthe- 
less learned to control his fiery temper and 
is looked upon by all, especially the 
plebes, as one of the best-natured men 
in the class. 

Congenial and sociable by nature, he 
makes friends easily and has no diffi- 
culty in keeping them. If we may judge 
the size of his circle of friends by the 
number of letters he writes, it appears 
that he has almost more than he can keep 
up with. Does he ever let a day go by 
without writing to at least one of them? 
Not Wilbur! "Hey, Gadget, are you

over anywhere from one to six letters. 

Only two things kept him from star-

"Cokey Joe" 
Galax, Va. 

WHEN this mere stripling left the 
wilds of Virginia to come up to 
the Naval Academy little did he realize 
the great events that lay in store for 
him. Few people would have thought 
that some day Joe would become the radia- 
tor sitting champ of the Naval Academy, 
which title could probably include radia- 
tor sitting champ of the world. For two 
years he spent his leisure hours in close 
contact with the radiators, but it was dur- 
ing second class year that he weakened 
and moved up to the rail above it. Near- 
ly every afternoon from that time on, 
Joe could be found perched on his rail 
expounding political ideas and telling of 
Democratic conventions that he attended 
at the various ages of from four to twelve 
years, back in the good old days when a 
convention was a convention. 

He might have been a potential ath- 
lete, but that is something that will al- 
ways remain a mystery, as Joe never felt 
the call of the sweat clothes. 

We can't prophesy for the man, but 
I reckon he'll get by in most things.

IT can be said of Steve that he grows 
on you. He came to the Academy 
from Gothenberg, the city beautiful, a 
quiet, unassuming lad, with a wealth of 
wavy hair and a football physique. He 
was determined to garner all the East 
coast football honors, but after some time 
confined his activities along that line to 
class encounters. He then took a turn 
at practically every sport in the Academy, 
and finally captained the class bowling 
team his youngster year — and we can't

"Thug" "Bill" 

Humphrey, Nebraska 

With many tales of Nebraska and 
Creighton University, our Bill came 
to seek his niche within these four walls, 
and he found several. Never to be seen 
without his bit of humor and famous 
smile, Bill has permanently secured the 
Academy's best — many, many friends. 

'Most any sunny afternoon will find 
him on the tennis courts with a very 
tricky brand of tennis. That does not 
hold for weekends, however, for a hop 
is never complete without him. 

Plebe year came and went, and Bill 
had tried his hand at track, lacrosse, and 
football. Spare time was always his, for 
it was a disdainful study hour that he 
gave to any class. Dago stumped him 
for a while, but all of us remember the 
uncanny luck that he had with the tongue 
in Barcelona. 

With rare enthusiasm and unbounded 
good humor, he can scarcely fail our 
prediction for a colorful career. Our trib-

memory of an ideal roommate, a good

"Duke" "Gus" "Al" 

Boston, Massachusetts 

Anyone who has heard of beans and 
tea and ships has heard of Boston. 
From this old seafaring town our Duke 
came to cast his lot with Father Nep- 
tune. He is the last, but hardly the 
least of four brothers to enter the naval 
profession. Duke followed the call of 
the sea by shipping out at an early age 
and he came to us with the salt still in 
his hair. 

His robust constitution and natural en- 
ergy impelled him along athletic lines to 
the B squad and to his favorite sport, 
baseball. One of Duke's well-known ac- 
complishments is his ability to flip a cig- 
arette butt through half an inch of open 
window without even looking. 

Academically he has always given a 
good account of himself as a result of 
a dogged aptitude for learning, which 
has resulted in excellent standings. As 
for feminine conquests, he has a way 
with the women that is not to be denied, 
but if you ask him, he'll say that his true 
loves are his sleep and his pipe.

It is a far cry from Seattle to Chesa-

Otto to forsake the Golden West for a 
balmier clime, as he cast his lot with the 
other thirty score of us in the summer 
of '28. 

His natural restlessness and love for the 
sea led him to ship out at a tender age. 
His early travels took him to far-off 
Japan, China and Alaska. Thus was the 
die of his seagoing life cast, on the 
turbulent Pacific. 

His life at the Academy has been a full 
one, indeed, as every form of athletics 
has taken its due of his time. His chief 
interest lay in the javelin and the Plebe

A persistency in everything under-

"Red" "Willy" "Marc" 
Brown's Valley, Minnesota 

To a few demure young ladies he is 
"Marc," but to the rest of the world, 
"Red." Can he help it? Not until his 
hair turns white. 

Red wanted to be both a good student 
and a good athlete. When the trees for 
Plebe October enveloped him in their 
branches he decided that one thing well 
done is better than two done poorly. He 
dropped athletics. 

Is he a snake? Yes, and his venom 
seems to be effective. When Red strikes, 
the end is near. 

Red's self-composure is startling. He 
did not even lose it once youngster year, 
when, having arisen upon the sound of 
the alarm clock and having shaved was 
setting out to close windows, only to dis- 
cover that the alarm setting had been 
thoughtfully changed from five to two. 

As Red shoves off from this Academy, 
here's good luck to him. He's got the 
tenaciousness and the stick-to-it-iveness — 
he's got the will-to-win. What more 
does he need except his life's task itself? 


"Haivkshaiv" "Foxy" "4.0" 

Des Moines, Iowa 

He came to the Academy singing the 
"Iowa Corn Song" and although four 
years have passed the chords of that tune 
are still vibrant in his heart. The lure 
of the salty wave was a great call, though, 
and Hawkshaw succumbed to its wild 
overtures. Always a bit reserved until 
you got to know him — then just a good- 
humored guy. Keenness and insight into 
difficult academics gave him a high place 
in the upper forty per cent. Hordes of 
fellows from all classes and walks of life 
"Who didn't get this stuff so well" 
swarmed into Hawkshaw's habitation be- 
fore an exam and took up his last study 
period. The problem always became 
tractable under his microscropic eye and 
acute memory. 

Although the reserve made of him a 
veritable "Red Mike" it was more or less 
because he had no time for women; they 
didn't fit so well in his mathematical 
conception of the universe. Hence we 
would find him learning probability 
after nine-thirty on hop nights. 

Math never hindered his aspirations for 
gym, and almost every afternoon he was 
out to develop that bicep.

Chattanooga, Tennessee 

When one asks this chap from 
whence he hails, he joyfully an- 
swers, "God's Country," which, in the 
vernacular of the less fortunate, is the 
state of Tennessee. In answering the 
call to the sea, Jimmie left his pursuit of 
studies at the University of Tennessee; 
but we shall always feel that what 
Tennessee lost the Navy gained. He is 
a man of accomplishments; studies have 
never had terrors for him. The suicide 
club claims him as an active member, 
and he spends most of his spare time in 
the pool trying to break some record. 

Jimmie's other diversion is the fair sex. 
He was making great strides toward hav- 
ing them all at his feet when he abruptly 
fell for a fair damsel from the mid-west. 
He spends a great deal of his time writ- 
ing letters which usually have the same 
address, and no day is a complete success 
for him unless he receives a letter from 
that place. 

He is an ardent admirer of character 
in others and is himself a living example 
of it. No one can have a truer and finer 
friend than Jim — happy, patient and 
square — a gentleman ! 


"Bob" "R. E." 

South Pittsburg, Tennessee 

Down where the muddy Tennessee 
River unwinds itself from the fa- 
mous "Moccasin Bend" lies the town of 
South Pittsburg, famous for its femmes 
and "mountain dew." 

Why Bob allowed his thirst for knowl- 
edge to lead him away from such a charm- 
ing place we do not know. It is a fact 
though that, during his one year at the 
Alabama Polytechnic Institute in Auburn, 
Alabama, and during his four years here 
at the Academy, his greatest desire was to 
be able to visit his folks and "give the 
girls a treat." 

Bob pledged Kappa Sigma before he 
became a Plebe. How he developed this 
taste for "pledging and plebing" he won't 
say; but he must have developed one to 
take such a drubbing and enjoy it. 

His innumerable drags and friends are 
very thankful that his broad grin is con- 
stantly visible 

His sunny disposition, added to his 
determination "not to allow his books to 
interfere with his college education," has 
made him a fine chum.

Staten Island, New York 

Gentlemen, meet the wife. Hailing 
from Staten Island in New York 
Harbor, it was only natural that his first 
thoughts were of the water. During the 
days of his boyhood he learned of the sea 
from true sailormen. When he became a 
young man the call of the sea lured him 
away from home. In the seafaring 
atmosphere he gained, for all time, the 
qualities of perseverance, determination 
and faithfulness. These have been in- 
strumental in making him a success in 
his chosen profession. 

Seafarers are hardy men and George is 
no exception. He is a clean, hard fighter, 
and we have been proud to have him as 
a fellow member of a fighting organiza- 
tion. Second class year fulfilled one of 
his greatest ambitions with a regular posi- 
tion as fullback on a mighty good soccer 
team. Youngster and Plebe years he also 
did fine work on the track team as a half- 

George does have a weakness. It is 
for the climate down old Virginia way. 
We wish him success in all his undertak- 


Saugus, Massachusetts 

Here is a hard worker, a man whose 
name has appeared on many a 
"tree," a subject of several "notices of 
concern" on the part of the superin- 
tendent, still a classmate who has fought 
and won. Academics have left him very 
little time for outside activities, yet he 
cheerfully accepts his work and its re- 
ward, be it encouraging or not — a true 
man of the service. 

When work is over no one is more 
willing to cooperate toward the good time 
of all. Few worries are capable of 
disturbing such a good nature and his 
greatest pleasures are found in "Caulk- 
ing off," beating the late bell to forma- 
tion and attending every hop within the 
city limits. The ladies make little im- 
pression on this man even though Art 
seldom misses an opportunity to acquaint 
himself with their whims and fancies. 

His ambitions lay in the service and after 
five years he remains happy in the choice 
of his profession. With high hopes and 
confidence Art prepares for the future, 
and knowing him as a classmate and a 
shipmate we firmly believe in that future.

"Cotton" "R. L." 

Hurst, Illinois 

Ronald Lee Wilson — a man of the 
world in spite of his expression of 
innocence. Childhood spent in a coun- 
try of flying bullets and one hundred per 
cent American, Williamson County, Illi- 
nois — capped by a year at Southern Illi- 
nois Normal University, left no doubts in 
his mind as to the harshness of the world. 
Having little faith in men, and none at 
all in women, he suffers not at all from 
the disillusionment that so often unnerves 
more credulous mortals. 

Considering his happy-go-lucky dis- 
position, his desire to be up and doing 
something is amazing. That, perhaps, is 
a hangover from his farming days. Is it 
not conceivable that he acquired his fond- 
ness for running by chasing in the cows 
every night? What is to be said concern- 
ing his marvelous ability at addition and 
subtraction, and his fondness for all 
forms of math? Does it not seem possi- 
ble and even probable that such aptitude 
and taste may be a result of his counting 
the numerous eggs laid by the hens out 
on the farm? 

Always alive and full of fun, "R. L." 
is the very best of company.

the decks of Bancroft Hall came this 
young "giant" of the Old West to try

Harry's first attempt to become a Mid-

disappointment for him, as a result of 
which he set about with a more dogged

a satisfaction in doing things as they are 
supposed to be done, and a readiness to

these a no little talent for music and a

"Dib" "Professor" "A. G." 

At Large 

As a Navy Junior, Dib has seen Aus- 
tralia and the South Seas from a de- 
stroyer's deck; so we little wonder that 
he was attracted to the Academy. 

Academics kept Dib from participation 
in several sports in which he would have 
shone. The first two years were a series 
of ups and downs. Plebe and Youngster 
math accounted for two Christmas leaves 
and one re-exam. But with Baker two- 
blocked and the desks cleared for action, 
the Professor came out on top. He might 
have done better but he was often too 
eager to prove the text wrong and back 
it up with conclusive argument. 

As a Red Mike, he knew no peer. For 
two years and a half hops and drags went 
by unnoticed. Sleeping held a much 
greater appeal for him — at least that's 
what he said. We wonder; Tennessee 
must have some charms! 

We've spent four enjoyable years with 
Dib and we're sorry to have to part ways 
with him. He has always proved himself 
a friend in need. Best of luck, old man. 


"Doctor" "Hijo" "Johnny" 

Galesburg, Illinois 

After seventeen hard years of living 
up to the name of the "Galesburg 
Flash," Doc bade farewell to the old gang 
and came to the Academy for a rest. 

Plebe summer found him giving his all 
for the third company in the art of self- 
defense. However, when the academic 
year rolled around, Doc decided to spend 
the majority of his afternoons giving 
loyal support to the Navy teams and Plebe 
bull sessions. The check-up after the 
Penn game in '28 caught him with a 
cherished banner of ol' '98 well wrapped 
around his middle. 

Second class summer — but why bring 
that up? Doc was in the hospital that 

Academics never seemed to worry him ; 
in fact, nothing did. He looked at the 
bright side of everything and enjoyed life 
in general. He even wore overshoes with 
a smile! 

After graduation we know that Johnny 
will uphold the Navy tradition of doing 
whatever work is assigned — and doing it 
cheerfully and well. We wish him the 
best of luck and hope that he continues 
his jaunt through a successful career.

"Andy" "Nize" "Niece" 

Boise, Idaho 

Look! A curly-headed brunette from 
away out West is sighted on the hori- 
zon. Each femme turns to her companion 
and says, "Who is that good-looking 
boy?" The invariable reply is: "You 
must be new here, everyone knows Andy." 
Youngster year Nize began to step out in 
society. Aided by his charming ways, 
winning smile and impregnable heart he 
has developed into a snake of the first 
water. No hop is complete unless Andy 
is there to stir pangs of jealousy in the 
hearts of the unlucky damsels who do not 
receive his attentions. 

Andy, however, has not spent all his 
time giving the girls a treat. His ex- 
tremely versatile nature has answered the 
clarion call of a multitude of sports. His 
favorites have been football, lacrosse, 
swimming, and gym. Although he has 
not always been at the top of the pile, his 
ruggedness and tenacity have made him 

These qualities which he has developed 
here and elsewhere in military life should 
carry him to the top of the Service. His 
friendship cannot be evaluated, for it is

Vancouver, Washington 

Yes, girls, he is perfectly a darling, 
but beware! His winning personali- 
ty has been the cause of many a broken

a normal chiid, deep mystery surrounds 
him and it is sadly believed he is lost to 
the cause of love. 

Athletically Dave has starred only in 
that event for which if letters were 
awarded he would be wearing crossed 
knives and forks ; but fortunately his pas- 
sion is juice, and early Plebe year he be- 
came a loyal member of the "juice gang," 
in which organization he has faithfully 
devoted his efforts toward bigger and 
better "prop" rooms. 

Naturally savvy, Dave rarely bones 
long but gets his old 3.3 by shooting a 
heavy line. Once he bilged a Nav. exam 
and Luce hall trembled for a month. De- 
spite a voluminous correspondence which 
keeps two pens busy and his roommate 
out of stamps, Dave is always willing to 
help a wooden classmate gain the coveted 
2.5. Dave is a true shipmate and friend 
who is bound to find a brilliant future in

Oneida, New York 

One whom his classmates found ex- 
ceedingly quiet — a little fellow also 
— "six-foot one in his stockin' feet," up- 
holding the dignity of both the Naval 
Academy and the home State. Of his 
early life little is known, and it cannot, 
therefore, be "treated within the scope 
of this book." 

His ship of destiny sailed up and down 
the courses of Plebe year and Youngster 
year, threatening to break up on the rocks 
and shoals of the Steam Department, find- 
ing peaceful waters only when on the 
home stretch of Youngster year. 

Now was to come his failing moment, 
his bugbear — a handful of all that is 
bad, twenty-five feet of rope. Endless 
days of tireless effort to drag his 190 
pounds to the top seemed in vain. When 
all other methods had failed, however, he 
just up and climbed it and got his much 
cherished Christmas leave. There being 
no more worlds to conquer, he had only 
to wait for that bright sunny day in June, 


"Ken" "Kenny" "Rollo" 

Flushing, Michigan 

CL~r want to go back to Michigan" may 

JL be the plaintive wail of some people, 
but the reverse is quite true of Kenny; 
hence his decision to cast his lot with the 
salty sons of the sea. He had to stand on 
his tiptoes while being measured to fool 
the Doctor into thinking he was tall 
enough to be a sandblower. His size, 
however, did not prevent him from try- 
ing his skill at most sports worth trying, 
until he finally found his niche, water 
polo, the legion of suicide. 

Content to let the savoirs take Aca- 
demic honors, Kenny has been known to 
fall from the graces of Tecumseh. Once 
unsat, however, the results of work and 
ability combine to place him at the top 
of the heap. His preference for a cruise 
to flight instruction won him his big 
black N * * * 

His is a complex nature, defiant of 
analysis, at the same time gay and serious. 
Surely, when his big smile appears, his 
function seems to be to brighten this drab 
world, yet his depth of vision is apparent. 
His readiness to lend a sympathetic ear 
to a woeful tale is well known. 

Who could want a better friend?

"Wesch" "Charley" 

Erie, Pennsylvania 

^s~> o West, young man, go West," 
\J but heedless of this good advice 
he, none other than Charles Weschler, 
came East. Oh, the pity of it! Yes, 
when the Naval Academy claimed its own 
"Wesch," Pennsylvania's staunchest sup- 
porters and one of '32's savviest volun- 
teers, found himself marking ink in one 
hand and piccolo in the other. 

Wherever you travel with "Wesch" — 
whether on the heights of Tibidabo, drift- 
ing through Pompeii, knocking about Lon- 
don, or merely rambling up and down the 
Seaward Terrace — you will find him your 
true pal and constant friend. Keeping 
"Wesch" happy is a problem no bigger 
than his appetite. In fact we attribute 
the major portion of his academic vic- 
tories to a plenteous supply of baked 
"spuds," although when the Hill and 
Dale season comes around "Charley" is 
apt to be a shade slimmer than usual. 

If it were Einstein's privilege to know 
"Wesch," that eminent scientist would 
wonder with the rest of us, "That one 
small head could carry all he knew."

Shamokin, Pennsylvania 

"npHEN the tuckets, then the trumpets,

Hesser, the pride of Shamokin, is rid-

A cherubic grin characterized Hesser's 
early days and bears with him to the 
present. True, there were times when the 
going was rough and a sunny smile was 
a mighty effort, but the old order passes 
and after an eternal chauffeuring of vic- 
trolas, impersonating of Omar the bunk 
maker, and masquerading as ye olde tyme 
printer's devil for the Cut Exchange, there 
are "no more plebes." 

Of course there is another side to 
the little giant. As a wrestler Mitch 
shames Samson and Hercules. 

Hess can read and write. He speaks 
a little Spanish. He can differentiate be- 
tween a cheese-headed stud bolt and a 
guess warp. And so it is with little 
hesitation that we say we know he will 
make things pop wherever he goes.

Unlike many of us Bill made up his 
mind to be one of us a mere two 
weeks ahead of time. Since then he's 
been thinking farther ahead and manag- 
ing to get what he wants with equal suc- 

Plebe year crew and good grades were 
the goals. Taking the year as it came and 
biding his time Slim came out on top. 

With that thin gold stripe Bill became 
himself. Swimming vied with academics 
for first place and social life was post- 
poned. The year showed the results of 
concentration in both branches. Second 
class summer saw him knocking off the 
laps, developing the stamina that was to 
mean so much later. 

September leaves left no lasting im- 
pressions and the letters that followed 
were soon neglected. Slim soon became 
engrossed in pursuit of those two stars: 
one on the collar and one alongside an N. 

As a reward for straight thinking Bill 
steps on the threshold of life well pre- 
pared for its tests and backed by the 
respect and friendship of his associates.

San Jose, California 

FROM some place in the far West, some 
say California, others British Colum-

heard the call of the deep and answered 
by wandering East to join the Navy. 

One of the few of us who manage to 
actually enjoy themselves no matter where 
placed, he soon made a niche for himself 
in the life of the regiment. Every time 
he returned from leave there was another 
girl, or two, or three, who flooded the 
room with letters, special deliveries and 
telegrams. He always obliged, even to the 
extent of attempting to drag two girls on 
Saturday afternoon when he had the 
watch, some extra duty, and other dis- 

Class football found Jack on the field 
digging for thirty-two until he went up to

seriously, and he always managed to be

as you find them, though he sometimes 
tries to hide it, rather unsuccessfully. 

When Andy finds his place and gets 
under way for the long cruise through 
life, the boys in front will have to stand 
clear and let him through.

"Tom" "Tarzan" "Buzz" 

Beatrice, Nebraska 

Wild Indians and buffalo herds 
chased Tom over the bleak Ne- 
braska plains in his youthful days and, 
eventually, up to the portals of the state 
university. The lure of brass buttons and 
gold anchors finally caused the transfer 
of this young man from the laborious 
life at that institution of higher learning 
to the ease and comforts of the Naval 

Very shortly after his arrival he began 
to draw a set of teeth for the Plebe Log, 
and this famous signature has since be- 
come known far and wide to the readers 
of that magazine. Then, as chairman 
of the Class Crest Committee, he super- 
vised the selection of the most distinc- 
tive crest in the history of the Academy. 

Academics have merited but slight con- 
sideration from him due to the lack of 
opposition, but the English Department 
occasionally forced him to desert Tarzan 
in the midst of some perilous adventure. 

In spite of all his duties Tom is al- 
ways willing to take time from his new- 
est invention or his latest momentous 
project to give a pleasant word or a little

"Mac" "Garry" 

Chicago, Illinois 

Young Sinbad Junior came out of the 
West with Iowa cornsilk on his vest. 
Having lived by the sea and rocky coasts, 
naval ambitions stirred in Mac's heart. 
Finding life at the University of Iowa 
much too soft, he decided to try Ban- 
croft's loft. 

Many were the times after bloody bat- 
tles with academics that he wished to de- 
sert his stern mistress, the sea, for the 
hayfields, but his expert aim, with a 2.5 
at a bull's-eye, always left a perfect score. 
This far-famed mathematician endeavored 
to change some principle of Napier and 
Newton, but the Math Department never 
was convinced. His academics were well- 
balanced by his popularity with the Execu- 
tive Department. 

Mac had a lot of fun Plebe year playing 
company football and teaching the upper 
classmen naval matters. 

Mac has always been the personification 
of the saying, "Still waters run deep." 
His few words are important ones. He 
is the kind of man you want to play 
squash with, study the principle of deep 
meditation with, have around all the time 
— a true gentleman.

"Fire Department" "Sparrow" 

Burlington, Iowa 

Frank felt the call of the sea when 
only a mere youth among the islands 
and channels of the Mississippi. He 
took an active part in all the maritime 
activities that the river afforded. The 
Mississippi was only a step to the Severn ; 
and when the opportunity offered, he 
made the step in a single stride. 

Sparrow immediately became famous by 
standing 1 in steam, Plebe year. All the 
unsats relied upon him for extra instruc- 
tion. But for him, the naval careers of 
many might have ended before they were 
fairly begun. His other studies did not 
come so easy, but academics have never 
given him any grave trouble. 

One of his early ambitions was to be- 
come a boxer, and he has spent many 
hours in the gym learning the art of give 
and take. He was ever the handy man. 
When anything needed repair or improve- 
ment Sparrow always came forward with 
some ingenious idea. Automatic stops 
for vies were his specialty. 

Sparrow's good nature and winning 
smile have won him a host of friends who 
wish him the greatest success.

"Red" "Tudy" "Rojo" "Salty" 


Came a gay cavalier-hillbilly from the 
dykes and moonbeams of West Vir- 
ginia. Born with a sword in his mouth 
he slashed his way to an Academy saber 
championship in two years. The "pride 
of the Ohio Valley" set his heart upon 
an N* and long and many were the days 
Red strove for this honor. 

Chief "Fire-on-Gonk" met with the 
Academic Departments at a very tender 
age. He retired to his cave at night for 
deep meditation, then sallied forth each 
morning to hound purveyors of knowl- 
edge, throwing into the startled eyes of 
the referees the iron-clad gauntlet of 
perseverance and determination. At the 
end of Youngster year beaten and torn 
Academic Departments found surcease 
from the bloody and painful battle they 
had thus far unsuccessfully waged. Dur- 
ing Second Class year they listened at- 
tentively to the young Archimedes, and 
in sheer desperation granted him that 
which he sought. 

His hobby is, apparently, a knowledge 
of ships and their ways, which proved a 
boon to his classmates his Plebe year, and 
a despair to the plebes ever since.

"Fuzz" "Spigot" 

Logansport, Indiana 

INDIANA has never given us a president, 
but then we have our Spigot. Besides, 
presidents have to work and that word 
"work" has no meaning in his young but 
eventful life. 

Starting life as a young lad in Logans- 
port, he decided to wander, and finally 
came to rest along the Severn. Emphasis 
must be placed upon the word "rest" — 
with ten minutes to go he can sleep for 
eight — "I love my sleep!" 

Academics? Yes, we have to study, 
but it has never seemed to bother Spigot. 
"That's all right; the prof will explain it." 
Leaving the struggles to his fellow class- 
mates he has glided unmolested by the 
powers that be. 

Women — ah — he loves her ! And fair 
ones, you are just too late. Still, one 
cannot keep dark curly hair and big blue 
eyes away from the unfair sex ; so our 
hero has had his moments. 

His virtues are many and his faults — 
first, a constant desire and a phenomenal 
ability to sleep, anytime, anywhere; sec- 
ond, a very beautiful but exceedingly 
odoriferous pipe. He has been a good 
wife and a wonderful classmate.

Little Rock, Arkansas 

If Little Rock had been a few square 
miles larger it might have retained its 
best hope for worldwide fame; but Her- 
bie got the wanderlust, put on his shoes, 
and started on the long, hard route to the 
Naval Academy. 

Academics found Herb a hard and de- 
termined opponent. Several times the 
books nearly won, but the indomitable 
will to win and the ability to dig when 
the digging was hardest have earned his 
position with Uncle Sam's best with the 
opportunity to go far and high. 

Coming to us with a working knowl- 
edge of the spectacular art of tumbling, 
he has developed into a real champion. 
Academic setbacks and ankles cracked in 
his never-ending search for some trick 
more difficult than the rest kept him from 
making an early rise to the position he 
deserved; but the gym team is better for 
having had him with them. 

A whole head of curly black hair, an 
abundant supply of wit, and a knowledge 
of the intricacies of the light fantastic 
have gained him a host of friends wher- 
ever he has gone.

Boonville, Missouri 

Back in the summer of nineteen 
twenty-eight a long-eared Missouri 
mule came galloping up to the Naval 
Academy gate and lo, there sat Mack as 
blithe and happy as when he left the 
Ozark Mountains back in old Missouri. 

He began Plebe summer backed up by 
plenty of military experience and there- 
fore went through the long hot months 
of training easily and entered "ac" year 
with his best foot forward. The end of 
Plebe year found Mack well up in his 
class and a member of the Plebe Inter- 
collegiate Rifle Team. Having lost two 
roommates early in his life at the 
Academy, he decided to take no chances 
and acquired three all at once at the be- 
ginning of second class year. Mack has 
an affinity for wagers, but we know one

one. A well-balanced man you are

"Staff" "Ford" "Dionisio" 

Roanoke, Virginia 

""V T o Suh ! There is nothing like 

J»\| Southern hospitality," says Staff. 

"Just come down to ole Virginny and 

spend this leave with me, and " Staff 

has put Roanoke on the map at the 
Academy with his winning ways and 
ability to make friends. Although he 
had passed up the many opportunities of 
commercializing his dramatic abilities by 
coming to the Academy, he did not give 
up acting entirely. He has taken the 
lead in the majority of the plays produced 
during his four years as a midshipman. 
Staff seems to like the Plebe rate of drag- 
ging sisters, even though he did not drag 
his "Sis" until his Youngster year, and 
has been dragging her ever since. 

Every man excels in one thing and has 
a pet hobby, and Staff is no exception. 
He excels in the Spanish lingo and polish- 
es his cigarette case for a hobby. He is 
a man who is easily pleased and possesses 
the faculty of adjusting himself to any 
conditions. "A cigarette, a cup of good 
coffee, and I am happy." Good luck to 
you, Staff, we know you will succeed.

"Carp" "Tru" "B. B. B." 

St. Johnsbury, Vermont 

"/^arp" hails from the rocky hills of 
K^_j Vermont where they don't have a 
Navy and his life has been one surprise 
after another ever since he left the little 
farm back home. Plebe summer "Carp" 
stepped in the ring for the first time and 
captured the heavyweight boxing cham- 
pionship of his class. Not content with 
this he proceeded to paddle one of those 
shells all over Severn River and its 
tributaries. His "Youngster" cruise con- 
sisted of a shell, a transatlantic liner 
full of co-eds, and finally a battleship. 
"Carp" is just six-feet two of good fel- 
lowship and a real pal. He doesn't have 
any trouble with "Acs" though he isn't 
especially fond of the language they speak 
in Barcelona. However, he has never had 
to burn the midnight oil. When "Tru" 
came to the Academy Plebe year he really 
had an O.A.O. but now try to count 'em! 
Oh, no, he isn't a ladies' man though we 
suspect the ladies wouldn't mind as the 
weekly and sometimes daily box of fudge 
proves. "Carp," you have the right stuff 
and we wish for you and know that you 
will achieve success.

Memphis, Tennessee 

The South bred him but couldn't hold 
him. Memphis cradled and nourish- 
ed him, but she offered too peaceful a fu- 
ture to her son born to unrest. John 
Grider came to the unchained sea as 
naturally as his Prussian forbears sought 
the military. 

Despite his independence the Big Shot 
is too wise to abjure hard work. With 
the patience and persistence of a wily 
tribesman he stalks the elusive integral 
to its lair, and with the forbearance of a 
Buddha he marshals an imposing array 
of facts on reducing valves, star sights 
and flat trajectories. 

Action was his father's bequest to a 
turbulent son. He yields to discipline, 
but he slips the leash at times. His bat- 
tles to the death at water polo are epic. 
A fighter born, his drive and will make 
him a pleasant ally and a dangerous op- 
ponent. He stands on his own feet and 
backs his own decisions. Subtlety is not 
his forte. 

He's a man's man and a man's friend 
— a credit to the service he loves and to 
the Southland he calls home. 


Clarendon, Texas 

Powder River! Mile Wide and an 
Inch Deep! Wahoo! And much 
loud griping is good evidence of Jerry's 
presence. He can gripe more with less to 
work on than a farmer wanting relief. 
But just let anyone help him out in his 
work and he will turn on him with so 
many arguments that they sink to the 
deck — his left to the solar plexus being 
the best. 

Jerry is one of those rare people who 
have superb self-confidence that can't be 
called conceit. After spending his win- 
ters in Spike Webb's lair he has become 
a little punchdrunk, but can still muster 
his brains to the task and star in a few 
subjects. Not a savoir, but able to hold 
his own without a lot of effort, leaving 
time to work on the Log and otherwise 
divert himself. 

The great world has no terrors for this 
young man and he is out to make it his 
oyster. Jerry is always ready to help out 
a pal in anything from a fight to a dago 
lesson, and those who are counted as his 
friends have a jump on the enemy. Here 
is to happy days, Jerry, and a long honey- 
moon !

"Don" "Danny" "Schmaltz" 

Paynesville, Minnesota 

A man from Minnesota who "bane not 
Swede," despite his love of a little 
"snooze" now and then. He left the 
lakes, fish and farm, and turned his eyes 
and feet seaward. 

Wrestling, his only consistent love, 
lured the "man from the lakes" to the 
seaward end of the gym daily. Again 
we saw proof of the old maxim "prac- 
tice makes perfect." Second class year 
found Danny at the "top of the heap" in 
this he-man sport. 

With the plaudits of the multitude, and 
the admiration of the fair sex, life would 
seem to be a "path of roses" for Dan; 
but the Academic Departments did their 
best to provide the "thorns." Steam and 
Math were his particular Nemesis, but a 
courageous heart, hard work, and 
perseverance brought him off quite a few 
jumps ahead of the Academic "Reaper." 

A lovable personality, minute and lik- 
able failings, and more than his share of 
grit, served to make Dan a perfect room- 
mate. Many a would-be weary hour has 
passed swiftly in the presence of his good 
humor and cheerful reminder, "Oh, so 
the war is on, huh."

"Daniel" "Bill" 

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 

Bill rolled into the Academy fresh 
from the Quaker city and "Bobby's." 
He set out at once to prove his worth to 
the Navy by playing in all of '32's soccer 
games. Youngster year and Second Class 
summer found him gaining experience in 
his favorite sport. Second class year he 
blossomed forth as a regular and won the 
coveted "N." 

Academics never worry him, his high 
standing being achieved without any ap- 
parent effort. He is ever ready and will- 
ing to lend a helping hand or to "run" 
someone. "Now, Jim, don't flinch — I 
won't slug you." As far as we can see, 
his worst habit is knocking off smoking. 
"Well, Danny, this is my last skag. Moe, 
two swats if you catch me with another 
one." His Irish humor and fighting 
spirit have made him many friends among 
both sexes. Although frequently exercis- 
ing the sailor's right to gripe and long 
for freedom, Bill would rather lose a leg 
than leave the service. We send him to 
the fleet confident that the rest of his 
career will be as successful as its begin-

"Jed" "Jim" 

Washington, D. C. 

^TOW, just in round numbers, how 
<S many letters did I get? 

Jim came to the Academy after hav- 
ing lived in Washington, Newport, 
Omaha, and Santo Domingo, to fulfill 
his ambition of becoming a naval offi- 
cer. He still likes to spend his leaves 
in Washington, and sometimes can't wait 
for leave to start again. 

Owing to the aggressiveness of the 
steam department he found many obstacles 
in his path ; however, with a lot of hard 
work, and an uncanny ability to pull sat, 
he has won many an uphill battle with 
the academics. 

Jim is a combination of cheerfulness 
and good humor, mixed with an abun- 
dance of common sense. Another of 
his great failings is his desire to argue, 
which he will do at any time, under any 
circumstances. Worry has certainly 
never been one of his afflictions, and his 
motto seems to be to take things as they 
come, and to face life cheerfully. 

During Youngster year he started an- 
other conquest, that of dragging the 
fairer sex. 


"Moe" "Steve" "Father" 

New Bremen, Ohio 

STEVE hails from Ohio, and his broad 
gleaming smile portrays the fact that 
he is proud of it, when the "De donde 
es vd?" comes from a Dago prof. After 
a commendable year at Ohio State, he 
decided that the foundation of his ambi- 
tion lay within these very grey walls. 

His infant naval career has been a 
great success. Although not of the real 
savoir type, his natural aptitude and 
thorough conscientiousness have kept him 
near the top in academics. He is always 
ready to lend a helping hand to any less 
fortunate, and as a "prof," there is none 
better. Steve writes with no mean talent 
and attained positions on the staffs of the 
Log and Lucky Bag. Athletics also claim 
their share of his time; Second Class 
year he made the B Squad and likewise 
showed the old Navy fight as a wrestler. 

With a keen sense of humor, an ex- 
ceptionally active mind, and a serious 
nature, he cannot help but rise in the 
Service he loves, and the best wishes of 
his classmates go with him.

over cigarettes, I'm always glad I never 
started smoking."

Bisbee, Arizona 

Johnnie left Arizona and came to the 
U. S. N. A. more out of curiosity 
than anything else. When a boy he had 
heard about water but things have to be 
proven to Johnny. Johnny is a great 
little man. Wherever Johnny is there 
will be something going on. He is never 
lacking in enthusiasm, energy, or ideas. 
If nothing else presents itself a rough 
house or so is always good. 

Johnny is not exactly savvy, but he has 
seldom been below section five or six. 
He has had his little tussles with the 
English Department, but he got that 2.5 
the same way he has won everything else 
he has undertaken. Johnny is a little 
scrapper. Of sports, he likes boxing best 
and woe unto the man that gets in front 
of his right hand in a pugilistic way. 

Johnny is a real friend. He is the 
kind a man likes to have along when an- 
ticipating a scrap — a true friend through 
and through. With his pleasing per- 
sonality and ability to make friends, 
Johnny is sure to go far. He is the kind 
that is sure to succeed in the Service or 
in any branch of endeavor on the outside. 
Our best wishes travel with him, always.

Hollywood, California 

JUST another son of California! Al- 
though Annapolis doesn't seem much 
like Sunny California, Jack doesn't seem 
to mind a little thing like that. Aca- 
demics hold no terrors for him, for with- 
out apparent hard study he seems to be 
always a member of one of the leading 

Jack seldom, if ever, drags and might 
readily be termed a Red Mike of the first

"Bobo" "Peewee" "Bo" 

Paducah, Kentucky 

Straight from Paducah came our Bo 
on the way paved by Josie Clifton. 
Early in Plebe year he realized that aca- 
demics would hardly prove a serious 
handicap to his career. Most of his time 
was devoted to stopping dashing backs on 
the gridiron or stroking the crew up the 

Bo's early ambition was to stroke the 
Navy crew, and he was not long in at- 
taining his goal. Plebe year he pulled 
a sweep in one of the heaviest Plebe 
varsities the Academy had ever known. 
Youngster year he stroked the Varsity 
to a most successful season. Critics at 
the Poughkeepsie Regatta described him 
as the most powerful stroke on the Hud- 
son. In the fall the gridiron demanded 
his efforts and Plebe year he held down 
a berth at tackle. Youngster and second- 
class years he performed on the "B" 
squad — punishing the highly touted 

With his easy southern ways and 
gentlemanly manners, he has won him- 
self an army of friends. Our true ship-

"Mac" "Marly Doiken" "Mike" 
Racine, Wisconsin 

Out of the wilds of Wisconsin from 
the neighborhood of Racine came 
our malted milk classmate Marty Doiken. 
From reveille until taps his favorite topic 
was football — something like this: "Gees 
guy, I wish I could play football like ole 
Chuck and Ben. Did I ever tell you of 
the 1926 Army and Navy game when 
they played against each other? Gees!" 
In spite of this endless line, Howard 
brought to himself and his class honor 
in athletics. 

Plebe year found him under the 
tutelage of his brother, Ben, on the foot- 
ball field. Although not very large, he 
made himself a well-known figure on the 
Plebe varsity. Having the stature and 
profile of an Indian, he grabbed a la- 
crosse stick and went on the war path 
during the spring. Youngster and second 
class years Howard stepped out on the 
gridiron and pasture doing his best to at- 
tain that block "N." 

Dry humor and his jovial nature have 
gained for him many lifelong friends. 
With his strong desire to follow in the 
footsteps of his brothers Marty should 
have no trouble in his future career.

"Burr-Head" "Wee Willie" "Bill" 

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 

FROM the land of "oil" came our Wee 
Willie to begin where John Paul 
Jones left off. During his Plebe year we 
found him on the football field helping 
the class of 32 procure a successful sea- 
son. Not satisfied with being a lone foot- 
ball man, he took up wrestling in order 
to find a billet for his some two hundred 
pounds. Here, fate took charge and 
caused Bill to give up this career due to 
a knee injury. 

Bill never aspired to be a savoir, thus 
he found himself at the Academy during 
his youngster Christmas leave. It was 
at this time that the fun-loving nature 
and the thrill of a midnight escapade 
caused him a mid-winter cruise on the 

At least we know that he has won our 
hearts and our friendship and we would 
more than like to be shipmates with him

have proved a problem to his three wives.

"Ed" "Heinie" "Konny' 

Oshkosh, Wisconsin 

What! You never heard of 
Oshkosh? Meet Ed and he will 
tell you all about it. From the land of 
many waters he set forth to gain what 
the Navy had to offer. It was not long 
before he found out that knowledge ac- 
quired at college would keep him off the 
trees, so he devoted practically all his 
time to athletics and caulking off. 

The football coaches opened their eyes 
wide when they saw Ed send the pigskin 
sailing down the field. Plebe year he 
held down a regular position at halfback. 
Youngster year he came back with the 
varsity squad and played on the "Yellow 
Zephyrs" The "A" squad claimed Ed 
second class year and played him as full- 
back in many of the games. Being a 
track star in high school and college, he 
has devoted much of his time to the 
cinder path. However, football injuries 
would not allow him to continue his 
former pace. 

The four years past have proven to us 
that Ed is a true and loyal friend.

Fredericksburg, Virginia 

WHEN John, alias Jack, cut his first 
teeth on the ornamented buckle of 
his father's sword belt, the Gods winked 
knowingly and said among themselves, 
"We'll send him to Annapolis." Various 
trials and tribulations were encountered 
in the interim between cradle days and 
the summer of 1928, but according to pre- 
diction, Jack became one of us, a Plebe 
in a voluminous suit of white works and 
a white hat that tired his ears. 

The fight with academics began in 
October and since then studies have of- 
fered no little opposition to Jack's am- 
bitions, but nothing daunted, he has sur- 
mounted all obstacles and, by persever- 
ance, has maintained his head above the 
academic sea. 

A sunny disposition, a desire to please, 
and a ready smile have made Jack a 
valued member of our class and they have 
helped to make our lives a little more 
cheerful. A detailed account of his quali- 
ties would be too lengthy, so suffice it to 
say that he has been a classmate of whom 
we are proud. What more could you 
say of any man? 


"Red" "George" "Rojo" 

Manchester, New Hampshire 

A man with Titian locks — a stern New 
Englander from the rockbound hills, 
through a mere manifestation of nature, 
became a sailor. 

His assiduity and perseverance lend to 
him an enviable degree of proficiency. 
Only one endowed with the Greek spirit 
of insatiable inquiry could listen so at- 
tentively to the most tiresome of lectures 
— and never drop a lid ! 

Though not a stellar performer in all 
athletic activities, Red is always out for 
some he-man sport and usually manages 
to maintain a berth on the training table. 

George is one of those few who strive 
to attain the ideal and yet in so doing 
appreciates the quiet pleasures of life and 
understands the foibles of his fellow men. 
He accomplishes his work thoroughly, 
but unobtrusively, and for Red the 
greatest joy of life is achievement. His 
ability to intersperse business with pleas- 
ure, coupled with a pleasing personality 
and a good nature, should bring him suc- 
cess wherever he may be. 

Red has been a friend amongst friends 
and a corking good roommate — and in 
every sense of the word a gentleman.

Parrott, Georgia 

In the real old southern town of Parrott, 
Georgia, Pinky was brought into the 
world, and the first thing that was in- 
stilled in him was the spirit of a gentle- 
man who lives in the sweet but mixed 
atmosphere of cotton and peaches. 

As he grew up his interests carried 
him into other fields. He spent one year 
at Georgia Tech and one at Alabama 
Poly, learning the fundamentals of en- 
gineering before entering the Academy. 
His congeniality and good humor soon 
won for him a wide following of frfends. 

Academics never caused him any trou- 
ble, but he didn't attempt to star because 
of his interests in other lines. He had 
a thirst for collecting books of a more 
serious nature, and soon expanded his 
analecta into a small but complete private 

We hope to have him with us out in

stead, we shall always remember him

That there is an end to everything was 
proved to Doc (his father is a doc- 
tor) as he dismounted the step of the 
W. B. & A. and thereby finished the long 
trip from Michigan to the U. S. N. A. 
Two summers at Culver Naval School, 
and a natural love for the sea, had fixed 
in him a single purpose — a naval career. 

As other than a spectator, Doc has had 
no interest in athletics; his chief and sole 
ambition having been to possess a more 
thorough knowledge of boats and things 
pertaining to the sea. Even girls haven't 
been able to tear him from his ambitions ; 
he has never "dragged" unless forced 
to by some designing or unlucky class- 

Here, at the Naval Academy, fellows 
are very closely associated; so, a young 
man must be exceedingly fine to win and 
hold the respect of all with whom he 
mingles. Doc does just that thing. 

Equally good in knowledge of ships 
or "radiator sessions." May you be as 
fine a Naval Officer as you give promise 
of being, Doc.

Phoenix, Arizona 

From the rocky canyons and the sandy 
deserts of Arizona to the shores of 
the Severn is a mighty leap and it must 
have taken some pressure to persuade 
this westerner to forsake his beloved land 
for the sea. After once entering the gate 
and saluting the jimmylegs, however, 
Mark decided it was all worth a try; so 
he became one of us on the 15th of June 
in '28. 

Mark devoted the first term of Plebe 
year to battling Dago. Since mastering 
this threat, he has turned his attentions 
into far more interesting channels. He 
pays not a little attention to the fairer 
sex, much to their apparent delight. In 
the spring we find him across the river, 
peppering away at a bull's-eye. 

Aviation wings are Mark's ambition. 
Ever since Plebe year he has been look- 
ing forward to Pensacola. And somehow 
we feel sure that he will make a name 
for himself in the air. His reliability, 
sound judgment and common sense will 
serve him well in this branch of the 
Service. Here's wishing him the best of 
luck and hoping that we'll be shipmates 
with him again soon.

arrived at Gate No. 3, but ever

his life up in the wilds of New York; 
so he went out for the rifle team. 

Lem has always been a consistent Red 
Mike, but we hear rumors of some adven- 
tures during second class September leave. 
Academics come rather easy to him, but 
while he has high ambitions he most in- 
variably just has to turn in during eve- 
ning study hour. During the winter 
you can often find him down at the 
bowling alleys on a Sunday afternoon 
slamming strike after strike down the 

Lem is a baseball fiend of the first 
water. He likes to play and he likes to 
follow the Big Leagues. Lem is con- 
stantly offering to bet on the Yankees or 
Babe Ruth. Any time anyone wants to 
know anything about baseball ask Lem. 

He likes the Navy, thanks to "The 
Admiral," but we expect to find him in

greatest pal, "Jerry." We are confident 
of his success in whatever he attempts.

"Elite" "Neil" "Squawk" 

Duluth, Minnesota 

JUST why this handsome lad from the 
land of the lakes dropped his gay life 
and became a plebe we do not know. 
His love for the military is not in keep- 
ing with his love of a high time — but 
he never fails to put the right one first. 

Femmes are taken for granted with 
him, and the same something makes him 
a would-be victim of every "how's to 
drag for me"- proposition. Academics 
never put his name in print but the week 
never passed that Neil didn't offer to bet 
that his name would be on the weekly 
tree. Being unacquainted with the tech- 
nical world when he entered, his chief 
enemy held forth in Isherwood Hall. 
This was accounted for, though, by an 
unusually fair batting average in other 

Athletics caused much long-winded ex- 
postulation. Without knowing why or 
how, he went out for fencing and left his 
name on the squad with many victories 
after it. 

Four years of Bancroft Hall with a 
real friend have brought a resolution not 
to end it there. We hope to spend many 
a good time with you again.

ON a bright summer day in 1928 this

Whatever the reason, Johnnie's white 
works had hardly begun to shrink when 
he decided that the Navy was his pro- 

There is nothing from tinkering with all 
sorts and descriptions of electrical and

gren on a Saturday night that he cannot 
do. Because of this there has been little 
time for him to devote to academic pur- 
suits. Notwithstanding, he is one of the 
outstanding scholars in the class. 

John has not taken athletics very seri- 
ously. In fact, he thought so little of his 
swimming that both Plebe and youngster 
years found him a member of the sub- 
squad. But when second class year rolled 
around he devoted a little of his abundant 
energy to aquatics and stayed clear of 
Henry's deficiencies. 

It is needless to say that John will go 
far in his profession and will cut himself 
a deep niche in the annals of our Navy.

The first sight of those grim walls with- 
in which he has withstood so many trials 
and tribulations did not deter him. Bold- 
ly he pushed aside the curtain and en- 
tered into the existence of that lowliest 
of mortals, a Plebe. Four years of work 
and worry; determination and persever- 
ance have brought him safely over the 
hurdles of Math, Steam, and Juice, to 
the ultimate goal of all of us. 

His nicknames have come, one from 
the temporary difficulties he sometimes 
encounters in the academic departments, 
and the other not from the traditional 
penuriousness of his race, but from other 
qualities not used in joke books. Cour- 
age, nobility of mind, sympathy, and sim- 
ple friendliness, have earned for him a 
host of companions who are glad to claim

Jim's face and he answers: 

"Tennessee, sir." 

"I thought so." 

Although the Chesapeake Bay was the 
first body of salt water this stalwart son 
of the Volunteer state had ever seen, it 
was a lucky day for the "ole Nyvee" when 
he decided that the life of one of Uncle 
Sam's "spoiled and pampered pets" would 
be the one for him. Coming to the 
Academy direct from Hume-Fogg High 
School, he expected to find the Academic 
Departments good ones for a fight. The 
first month, however, convinced him that 
he had the upper hand. 

He went out for crew his Plebe year, 
and because of his long arms and strong 
back had no difficulty landing a seat in 
the first shell. Unfortunately for Navy 
crew he had to turn in at the hospital just 
before the season opened, and that ended 
his efforts for an "N" with crossed oars. 

Because of his physical and mental fit- 
ness and a natural ambition for a naval 
career, we feel that Jim's name should 
be among those we predict as future ad-

Sausalito, California 

The sea with its natural beauty and 
mystery made an early and everlast- 
ing impression upon Joe. Living in Cali- 
fornia and Hawaii where he could view 
the fleet and appreciate the sea, Joe was 
filled with the desire for a naval life. He 
obtained an appointment to the Naval 
Academy, passed his entrance exams, and 
found himself as a member of the class 
of 1932. 

At the Academy the lesser part of Joe's 
time was spent in studies. What chance 
had the "Ac" departments in competition 
with athletics, women, and the latest 
novels ? Joe was quite an athlete in High 
School and Junior College and continued 
this interest in sports at the Academy. 
Football was Joe's principal sport but he 
has spent considerable time with crew and 
track during his first years at the 

Joe is a big man and always does well 
in whatever he undertakes. He has but 
little to say but what he says is exact. His 
popularity alone can speak for his sterling 
character and I am sure that he will al- 
ways be most successful in whatever he 
may attempt.

"Alex" "A. B." 

Fort Riley, Kansas 

THE call of the sea was heard in far- 
off Kansas, and from an Army post 
came Alex. Knowing what the Army 
was like, he chose the Navy — a choice by 
which both he and the Navy profited. 

Academics held little terror for him, 
but they got monotonous at times. He is 
a hard and conscientious worker, boning 
Nav or Juice in fancied weakness instead 
of the Cosmo. 

During his youngster year he nearly 
succumbed to the charms of a certain 
young lady in Washington, but since then 
our "Baba" has struck a happy medium 
between a snake and a Red Mike. 

He is a lover of athletics and one may 
always find Alex on the diamond during 
baseball season. He is an ardent follower 
of football and no practice is too small 
for him to watch. 

All in all, this light-haired, blue-eyed 
son of the Mid-West has made a host of 
friends with his happy smile and sterling 
character. Wherever he goes friendships 
will spring up, for he is a man among 
men, and a real shipmate.

"Zasu" "Ray" 

Breckenridge, Texas 

IF, as has been written, all men have 
a moving spirit an inner flame, then 
Ray's is music. But it's not narrowed 
down in him the way it is in some others 
we've met — he'd be content to play 
"Tannhauser" on the vie from reveille till 
taps, but he likes the other sort, too. 
Didn't he start out waving that clarinet 
around wildly as the Ten cut loose on the 
"Tiger Rag"? And hasn't he tooted that 
same horn for us through Friday nights 
in Smoke Hall, Musical Club shows, foot- 
ball rallies, and first class hops, to end 
up waving his baton out there in front 
as his boys start up "Anchors Aweigh"? 
Ray has never had the slightest trouble 
with the academics, but he's always so 
darned busy dashing to the Fourth Batt 
for Musical Club dope or down to the 
Music Room to take charge of a Ten re- 
hearsal (and incidentally keep the First 
Batt awake half the night) that he's never 
had time enough to do justice to himself 
in the matter of standing. 

Stand clear, all along! The Navy's 
premier aviator is coming through! 


"Mac" "Scotchman" 

McKenzie, Tennessee 

One day in June the Paymaster on the 
Reina handed a discharge to a bugler 
second class, shook his hand, and 
wished him luck. An hour later the Com- 
mandant of Midshipmen administered an 
oath to this same ex-bugler — Mac was a 
Midshipman at last. Three years is a 
long time to try, especially when salvaging 
lost subs on the Vestal or weathering 
Florida hurricanes on the Bobolink. 

Mac brought a quality with him from 
Tennessee, stubbornness in the raw. Not 
exactly that either; better said, a firmness 
of purpose, determination, a will to set 
a goal and reach it. The Academic De- 
partments had not reckoned with his 
Scotch nature when they put him unsat 
Plebe Christmas. Mac called a meeting 
of the clan, absorbed all the extra instruc- 
tion they had to offer, and hasn't been 
unsat since. 

Fencing has claimed Mac's athletic 
ability although some of our would-be 
pugilists have rubbed sore chins after 
getting in the way of his glove. He is 
especially fond of entertaining the young 
and unsophisticated with tales of the old 
Nyvee. "Now, when we raised the S-51."

It's hard to tell how word ever pene-

there was such a thing as a sea-going

"Johnny" "Jake" 

Plainfield, New Jersey 

There used to be a diminutive and ex- 
tremely ratey plebe in the Third 
Battalion. At the end of youngster Sep- 
tember leave we found his cruise box 
parked alongside ours, and in the room 
to welcome us back was Johnny himself. 
He wore a smile you "could see a mile," 
and he's been wearing it ever since. It's 
just a part of him that's never missing. 

We don't know much of his Plebe year 
activities, except that he emerged a wise 
and non-reg capped youngster. This 
extreme secrecy can be laid to his leading 
role in the Masqueraders. No one sus- 
pected that charming Miss who captivated 
our hearts in "The Devil in the Cheese" 
was Mr. Jacobs. 

One day youngster year the moral 
pressure of the room coaxed him over to 
the crew shed and Johnny began his 
career of coxswain. Some distant an- 
cestor named Legree returned from the 
shadows to coach him in his new-found 
avocation. Ask the Fifties! 

Some J.O. mess out in the fleet is go- 
ing to be a happier place to live when

"Bill" "Willie" 

Los Angeles, California 

This native son, who was born in 
Greeley, Colorado, enlisted to see the 
world. He saw it — or as much as can be 
seen while chasing prisoners across the 
reservation at San Diego. About then he 
conceived the idea of becoming a midship- 
man and combine an intensive course in 
travel through Europe with a few studies. 
'Twas a long hard struggle to get in — es- 
pecially with a top kick who sent Bill 
down to the dock in full equipment with 
every detachment bound for China — but 
like in all good stories perseverance won 

Bill has not demonstrated his athletic 
prowess excepting in the wrestling loft —

during the season giving someone a hand- 
ful or three. A trick knee has kept him 
from winning laurels in the realm of 

The same dogged determination which 
has characterized his work here will surely

At Large 

WHEN this Finney boy hit the Naval 
Academy he was out to knock 'em 
dead. Earl soon found out, like a great 
many of the rest of us, that stars are few 
and far between. But the discovery 
fazed him not at all. He tackled the 
academics with a will and was quite suc- 
cessful. A temporary setback by the 
Math department during youngster year 
failed to upset his equanimity; and by 
dint of hard study he managed to pull 
out of the hole. He's been riding on the 
top ever since. 

Earl is a steady-going, consistent sort 
of chap. He applies himself diligently 
to whatever task he has in hand and 
doesn't rest till he's finished it — and 
finished it in the way he thinks it should 
be done. He possesses the ability of at- 
tending to fine details as efficiently as to 
general ideas without losing his sense of 
the proportionate importance of both. 
He shows a keen interest in all things 
naval as well as a readiness to absorb 
such subjects. 

These characteristics together with his 
dogged will to win will make Earl a suc- 
cess and a credit to the Navy.

"Al" "Dick" 

At Large 

ON the fourteenth of June, 1928, a 
young Navy Junior named Dickin- 
son entered the Naval Academy as a 
Plebe. Dick had a number of ideas about 
the Navy, and ever since the beginning 
of Plebe summer has been trying to de- 
termine if his ideas were correct. Owing 
to this, he is rather cynical at times, but 
all those who really know him will never 
hold this against him. Dick is a fairly 
bright boy; so he gets by in all of his 
academics without much effort. The fact 
is, if he used a little effort he probably 
would be a star man. There is only one 
department that is able to hold him back 
some, and that is the Athletic Depart- 
ment. As Dick never was much of an 
athlete he found himself on the weak 
squad at the beginning of each year. How- 
ever, when Christmas leave period came 
in sight he would become a temporary 
athlete, pass all of his tests, and then 
be ready for a big leave. 

Although he does not appear to be a 
social lion, he has a good many friends in 
the Academy and all those who know him 
respect him a great deal.

"J. Harrf "Harry" 

Haddonfield, New Jersey 

After spending two years at Villanova 
and one at Swavely, Harry decided 
that he had missed his calling in life and 
began all over again in the Navy. 

Plebe year found him on both the foot- 
ball and crew training tables. Plebe year 
academics seemed to bother him not at 
all; in fact, he almost ignored them, but 
despite this he stood well. 

Youngster year was the usual round 
of new rates, et cetera, but the chief dif- 
ficulty that Harry experienced was that 
of having two dates at the same time. 

Second class year found Hayes on the 
football training table again, but this 
time he was seriously handicapped by in- 
juries. Outside of a sojourn on the well- 
known Reina Mercedes, this year was as 
successful as the others. 

During his stay at the Naval Academy 
Harry has contributed liberally to sports. 

The regularity of Hayes' mail was al- 
ways a marvel to behold ; a man must 
have something to rate that. 

Harry will, without doubt, be an asset 
to any service, and we feel that success 
will follow him into later life.

St. Louis, Missouri 

Once, in the much sung city of St. 
Louis, there lived a young radio 
operator named Rollins Mayer. This 
Rollins Mayer happened to be a mem- 
ber of the Naval Reserve, wherein he was 
developing his knowledge of his beloved 
subject, radio. Back in Rollins' mind lay 
the idea that he wanted to get ahead; 
and to do this, he knew that he must ex- 
pand his education. 

And so it came to pass that, after tack- 
ling the terrific task of absorbing a high 
school course in thirteen weeks, this lanky, 
earnest, rapid-fire radio operator entered 
the gates of the Academy. 

Within these walls the life of Rollins 
has been one of strenuous endeavor and 
of achievement. His battles with aca- 
demics have been continuous. First it 
was Dago. He made a 1.2 the first 
month, and people laughed when he 
vowed he would NOT bilge out. But 
he didn't, and his dogged determination 
has stood him in good stead in other in- 
stances since. 


Neville, Ohio 

The ideas of Harmon became the most 
important intellectual forces when 
he cashed in his civilian clothes 
for a Midshipman's uniform on the 
twenty-second of June, back in 1928. 
From this date, they steered him so wisely 
and efficiently that today we have that 
much demanded type of Naval Officer, 
who came with a suddenness that sur- 
prised us all. 

Many and various were the causes that 
hampered our boy's academics, but some- 
how Harmon never went unsat. His de- 
termination to win always predominated. 
He always got his way, regardless, but 
sometimes without dividends. As a plebe 
and as a youngster he had no sympathy 
for the ladies — but times have changed. 
Harmon always had many friends, which 
probably accounts for his attractiveness. 

We hope he carries his ideals and tradi- 
tions into the fleet with him; we know 
that, no matter wherever he may be, he 
will always be the same, well-liked 
friend and shipmate that he was to us.

"Si" "Perk" 

Fork Union.. Virginia 

Si is one of those sons of the South, 
and like all such, is mighty proud 
of it. Coming to the Academy after a 
brilliant military school career and a 
promising year at college, he started right 
in building that reputation for "putting 
out good dope" for which he is so well 
known. A sound background and the 
ability to grasp the principles of any sub- 
ject have kept him consistently off the 
trees and well up in the class without 
greatly extended effort on his part; and, 
together with his conservative nature, they 
have caused his opinions to carry much 
weight with his classmates. A knack he 
has for injecting humor into seriousness 
and vice-versa has made him an interest- 
ing companion in work and leisure. 

What is the secret of Si's success? 
What is it that enables him to win his 
way so easily into the hearts of men and 
women alike — any time, any place? Prob- 
ably Si himself doesn't know; we can do 
no better than call it an "indefinable 
something." But none can doubt that — 
whatever it is — he really has it.

Greeley, Colorado 

Chuck is the type of man who dis- 
tinguishes himself in everything that 
he undertakes. Thus we have found him 
during his four years at the Academy. 
Having completed two years at the Uni- 
versity of Colorado before deciding upon 
a life in the Navy, the usual academic 
stumbling blocks of Plebe year and 
youngster year held no horrors for him. 
However, his modesty and reserve mis- 
led us for a while, and it was not until 
we began to look eagerly at class stand- 
ings that we recognized a genius in our 
midst. Few can boast of a record better 
than his. 

As an athlete, the wrestling loft was 
his home. Here persistent work brought 
him some measure of success. Coupled 
with intellectuality, in him is found an 
abundant supply of good common sense, 
an inborn cleverness and facility for es- 
timating quickly any situation and a well- 
developed sense of humor. 

Dignified, but far from aloof; amiable, 
but rarely intimate; always helpful, but 
never patronizing; intellectual, with no 
evidence of the pedantic — this is Charles.

"Big" "Bagout" 

Minneapolis, Minnesota 

After spending three more or less 
laborious years pursuing a study of 
civil engineering at the University of 
Minnesota and finding it to be too evasive, 
Bigaouette wafted forth from the portals 
of his Alma Mater to begin anew his 
search for knowledge in an entirely un- 
familiar field. So we find this enigmatic 
Hibernian studying the contour of coast 
lines instead of hills and the sextant seems 
to be more to his liking than the transit. 

His powerful frame and natural ath- 
letic ability availed him little in winning 
a cherished position in the first boat on 
the power end of an oar but did serve to 
open wide a berth for him on the suicide 
squad. With this man physical fitness 
is a religion and for the reason of keep- 
ing himself in condition his selection of 
sports extended over a wide area. 

In reviewing his routes, we treasured 
his vocal contributions to first-class cruise

limits to the extent of his repertoire. 

Big's erratic but nevertheless jovial dis- 
position and his attractive personality will 
never cease winning friends for him.

Sapulpa, Oklahoma 

A red-headed man cannot be un-

"Stop-Go" first smelled salt on the breeze

"Dick" "Bunny" 

Trenton, Tennessee 

Just twenty-two years ago this hardy 
son of the South opened his eyes upon 
this scarred but generous world. After 
spending his early years in more or less 
agricultural pursuits, we find him setting 
forth from his native Tennessee at the 
age of seventeen to follow a career in 
the Navy. His first year developed into 
what proved to be the battle of the cen- 
tury — a contest with the Steam Depart- 
ment, still spoken of in awed whispers 
by those who witnessed it. Bunny lost 
the first round, but came back strong in 
the second and has been plugging man- 
fully ever since with never a halt. 

When he isn't struggling with aca- 
demics, you can always find him penning 
innumerable letters to the One whose pic- 
ture temporarily adorns the locker door — 
or, more often still, reclining blissfully in 
the arms of Morpheus. His greatest 
claim to fame has been his unfailing good 
nature, which nothing has been known 
to disturb, together with an astounding 
ability to sleep at any time, any place, 
and on the slightest provocation. 

May he have the greatest success and 
the best of luck in years to come. 


"Hairy" "Ski" 

Lorain, Ohio 

While attending Ohio State Harry 
felt the urge, so he finally decided to 
join us — thereby the Navy gained exceed- 
ingly. It did not take him long, in spite 
of the over-sized clothes, to gain recogni- 
tion, and his musical talent went far 
towards making our new life happier. 
Academic work was just another of those 
things to him, and he soon established 
himself among the favored few to whom 
the "trees" were an unknown quantity. 

Harry is one of those fortunate indi- 
viduals who, once they become interested 
in anything, can invariably succeeed in 
it; this ability, coupled with his inevitable 
good humor, should assure his success in 
all that he undertakes. 

To predict his future is beyond us, but 
we know, what with his keen sense of 
humor and his engaging personality, we 
need have no fear. Harry has endeared 
himself in the hearts of all who have 
come in contact with him — what more 
can we say than that we are proud to call 
him friend?

What an eye for business! Yes, 
that's Frank, the blonde from Buf-

But no, business never interfered with 
pleasure, nor kept him from seeing the 
latest "It" picture shown in Crabtown. 
One would think that he was trying to

The hospital claimed the greatest part 
of Frank's first year and delayed the ar- 
rival of his first "Drag." So you see the 
class of 32 profited by this misfortune 
and received a real classmate and friend 
before some little "lamb" could run off

He was not a varsity athlete, but did 
his share in intercompany sports. The 
majority of his recreation periods were 
spent working with the business staff of 
the Log or entertaining visiting athletic 
teams. The secret of his success is his 
idea that "A thing worth doing is worth 
doing well." This characteristic was evi-

May he have an enjoyable and prosperous

"Whitey" "Gene" 

Washington, D. C. 

Whitey left the quiet Potomac in 
answer to the call of the glamorous 
sea. His career has apparently been in 
the hands of the fickle goddess, Luck. He 
has impartially graced both the savvy and 
the wooden sections. Academics, at cer- 
tain times, have been of paramount in- 
terest to him; at others, merely a succes- 
sion of boring hours. 

He is not a Red Mike, but neither is 
he a tea fighting snake. He drags more 
or less frequently, pursuing his search for 
his ideal. 

Athletics in the form of boxing, foot- 
ball and track have claimed his efforts. 
Boxing, however, is his favorite, and each 
winter finds him in the gym pushing and 
stopping leather. 

It is difficult to say which he enjoys 
most, a good fight, chow, sleep, drag, or 
a bull session. At times, chagrined and 
griped at tough breaks, but never truly 
down-hearted, he grins and takes them for 
the best. This same grin and tenacity of 
spirit will carry him through the battles 
of the future as it has through those of

"Pablo" "Pee Dee" 

Mitchell, South Dakota 

Paul was ushered into the Academy in 
the early part of Plebe summer and 
they plumped him spang into a four-man 
room without even asking him if he had 
any preference for roommates. Nor did 
they ask him how he wanted his eggs for 
breakfast, either! However, Paul just 
began by becoming company C.P.O. for 
the summer months. 

Academic year found him ready and 
willing and his studies worried him little, 
though he always managed to emerge 
from the examination room confident of 
a fairly good mark. Paul has worked 
diligently, both on the basketball court 
and on the football field, and though he 
did not star in either of these sports he 
contributed his share toward the honor 
and glory of our big blue team. 

At any rate he has cruised through the 
four years with flying colors and here at 
the portal of a new life in the service 
we bid him Godspeed, confident that 
he has the right spirit and ability to 
achieve great success.

"James Laivsori' "Kemper" "Jim" 
El Monte, California 

IT was four long years ago that Jim left 
the sunny shores of California to come 
East and brighten Bancroft Hall with his 
smile and never-failing source of good- 
nature. After piloting a broken-down 
motor boat in California waters, he de- 
cided to give Uncle Sam the benefit of his 
experience by joining the Navy and con- 
vincing the powers that BE that he, too, 
was capable of commanding. 

Although not athletically inclined, as 
a youngster, he won his numerals in 
Navy's far-famed "Suicide Club," with 
the result of much publicity both here 
and at home. While not a regular at- 
tendant at the hops, he is famed locally 
for the quality of bricks that he is fre- 
quently seen with, although on some oc- 
casions one must admit that he was not 
responsible. This has resulted in making 
him somewhat pessimistic, when asked 
to drag for anyone. Thus has James 
Lawson brought no little sunshine into 
our midst, and, here's wishing him all 
of the luck in the world. 


"Hec" "Diz" "Dizzy" "Snooks" 
San Francisco, California 

Knowing something of the sea from 
an earlier contact with it in various 
capacities this scion of an old Spanish 
family thought to further dare the terrors 
and mysteries as his ancestors before him 
— and so came here. The terrors and 
mysteries were real enough, as he soon 
found. Not of the sea, however, but of 
that which leads to power upon it — 
knowledge. Diz, however, had no thirst 
for power, and the academic departments 
several times took toll. Indeed, until 
second class year he knew not the giddy 
exhilaration of a Christmas leave. Did 
it embitter him or, on the other hand, 
lead him to delve a little deeper into his 
books for knowledge ? No, indeed ! 
Ever he would go his blithe and cheery 
way. Spare time and study hours were 
ever synonymous to him. 

Needless to say, Hec and his easy-going 
ways should succeed admirably in the 
Gyrenes — his unalterable choice. Beneath 
that pleasant exterior is a firmness and 
will rarely displayed. With it is a 
knack for making friends and a certain 
touch of genius which should carry him 
far along the road.

Burley, Idaho 

The West lost a true son when Alton 
decided upon the Navy as a career. 
This choice caused him to take leave of 
many friends in Burley, but due to his 
amiable nature he has made many more 

The first term of Plebe year caused him 
a little concern, but by hard plugging he 
was able to survive the first of the many 
"rocks and shoals." Since then there 
have been few academic difficulties due 
to his conscientious efforts. 

He did not take to any particular ath- 
letics during his first two years, being 
afraid to take too much time from his 
studies, but he did keep himself in good 
shape by participating in company sports 
and by frequent workouts in the gym. In 
his second class year, Alton took up the 
genteel art of boxing in which sport he 
has ranked with the best of them. 

In regard to his character we can say 
that Alton has all the qualities necessary 
for an officer and leader. It will be a 
lucky ship that acquires his good-natured- 
ness, level-headedness, good fellowship 
and respect for others. 



Washington, D. C. 

Dick began centering his interest on 
the Academy back in his early kay- 
det days at Western High. It wasn't un- 
til after spending two years at George 
Washington University that he finally de- 
cided to cast his lot with the rest of us. 
Since the day Dick arrived he has won 
the respect and admiration of all those 
with whom he has come in contact. 

His favorite sports are football and 
wrestling, to which he has devoted most 
of his afternoons. Besides these he has 
spent many odd moments helping those 
who find it difficult to obtain the ever- 
necessary 2.5. Barring Saturdays and 
Sundays, and allowing for sleep and let- 
ter-writing, he spends a reasonable portion 
of what time is left on his studies. 

Dick can hardly be classed as a Red 
Mike, for he seldom misses a week-end 
without mingling with his great weak- 
nesses, the femmes. 

Always a good wife, a true pal, and a 
well-informed classmate, Dick will remain 
always in the future as a most desired 
friend and a splendid shipmate.

"H.P." "Cbelsa" 

West Newton, Massachusetts 

One of those famous Newtons in the 
old Bay State gave up a promising 
son and the Navy gained a man. Mix 
the sturdy and sincere qualities of New 
England with amiable good nature and 
biting humor — that's Horace. A smooth 
actor and a good one, for he lives his 
parts. This accounts for his success in 
the Masqueraders. 

While squash and tennis are his ath- 
letics, executive ability has bound Horace 
so close to track and cross country that 
managing takes a great deal of his time 
and energy. 

Sat but not savvy would be his aca- 
demic classification if hastily made. 
Upon closer observation, however, Horace 
is found to be one of the men who 
places the true value on breadth of mind 
and attainment of knowledge gained 
through activities rather than through 
high academic standing. Thus studies 
slide along in an easy and enjoyable 
fashion. If they drop, the result is a bit 
more concentration. 

On the stage of life, continue your 
happy and successful role "H.P." 


"Shell" "Brownie" "S. W." 
Erie, Pennsylvania 

Folks, allow us to present Sheldon 
Brown, Esq. — why esquire? — because 
he owns the world. Not that Shell 
is a boastful Monte Crista shout- 
ing, "The world is mine"; rather he is 
quietly satisfied with its possessions and 
gladly shares it with his pals — the last 
apple in his locker, chow from home, and, 
most important to his struggling class- 
mates, dope on any sort of probs. 

Like his "orbis terrarum," Brownie has 
plenty of light moments. Most any after- 
noon you can see him gracefully back- 
stroking his way across Henry's grand 
swimming pool ; while of an evening with 
the Vic grinding out a hot melody he 
will gladly demonstrate the latest Shag 
step he has learned. But beware, in a bull 
session, if you bring up a question that 
has two sides — how that boy dotes on an 
argument. He knows his world and has 
convinced many of us that it is foolish 
to take life too seriously. "After all," 
says Shell, "the world is just a playground 
where novel ideas may be toyed with and 
strange fascinating things are waiting to 
be done."

"The Pageant of the Nile' 

The Fourth ''Battalion 

* ik * 


Milwaukee, Wisconsin 

UP in the press box during the Navy- 
Dartmouth game back in '29 there 
was a big commotion. "Who is the little 
fellow, number 27?" 'Where have they 
been hiding him?" and various other 
cries as our "Bullet Lou" tore that big 
Green line to shreds. This was perhaps 
the first time the Regiment or the foot- 
ball world heard about Kirn of Navy. 
However, it surely hasn't been the last 

He was an eminent figure in Plebe 
Football, wrestling, and track. But this 
was just a start. Lou had a bit of hard 
luck at the beginning of his Varsity com- 
petition and slaved on the "B" squad for 
two months. He wasn't satisfied with 
himself and so he dug in his cleats and 
began his rise to fame. But unlike a 
meteor he has not been just a flash in the 
pan but is still carrying the Blue and 
Gold with distinction. 

He manages to keep his class standing 
high and is one of the most popular fel- 
lows in the Academy not only because of 
his football ability but because of his 
ready smile and pleasing personality. 


"Walt" "Wally" 

Lincoln, Illinois 

Only a short time ago Walter arrived 
at the portals of the Administration 
Building from the plains of Illinois. It 
was all strange to him, that his dreams 
of becoming a sailor were at last to be 
realized. Not long after Wally had be- 
come finally acclimated and was already 
doing his bit to help the Academy. 

His track work Plebe Summer was 
nothing short of marvellous. Three firsts 
every Saturday didn't seem to be the least 
bit difficult. 

More often people are satisfied to do 
one thing well, but not this lad. He 
proceeded to show his ability on the grid- 
iron, winning the coveted Plebe Numer- 

Truly here was a fine athlete; but un- 
like the type which had the reputation 
for having a weak mind and a strong 
heart, for studies were hurdled with as 
much ease as those in the track. 

That's not all, by any means, for 
despite all these other virtues he became 
one of the most popular men in the class. 

Athlete, scholar, Beau Brummel, popu- 
lar, all in one, that's Walter Dan 
Coleman of the plains of Illinois.

"Cy" "Colonel" 

Wendell, North Carolina 

JUST like a Tar Heel should be, amiable 
and happy. Cy has all of the quali- 
ties to make him the popular drawing 
card of every gathering and is the kind of 
a man that men and women alike want 
for a friend. 

The other day out at Carvel Hall some 
midshipman was overheard handing out 
a line that could belong to no one but 
Cy. His lambs are famous throughout 
the country because of their astonishing 
number and variety. This time some little 
lamb from way down South is captain 
of his varsity, but by next month she 
will have given the controls to a luckier 
and fairer drag. No hop is complete 
without this cavalier to look after his 
friends. His leaves are spent in gaining 
a wide range of new friends and ad- 
mirers and, as proved by his locker door, 
his success is remarkable. 

Lazy, easy to get along with, carefree, 
the biggest snake in the Academy, dragger 
of lambs, and many more adjectives are 
needed to do justice to this good rebel, 
friend and classmate.

'£/^ORKY" got his name from his in-

in which he broke all previous records. 
It is remarkable to view his accomplish- 
ments in the academic and literary field, 
taking into consideration the amount of 
time he spent in the arms of Morpheus, 
and that devoted to helping his less 
gifted classmates. 

His shark-like keenness does not apply 
to the classroom alone. As Editor of the

here is a man possessed of a practical as 
well as an academic mind. 

His natural congeniality, spirit of 
camaraderie and Southern drawl have en- 
deared him to the hearts of old and 
young. A snake — only when he has time 
for such. 

"Corky" has had no difficulty in gain- 
ing the confidence of his superiors, the 
respect and cooperation of his classmates, 
and the devotion of his subordinates. 
Four years with him have been a pleasure 
that none of us will ever forget, and may 
his future be as glittering as his past.

"Happy" "As" 

Marysville, Ohio 

HIS love of the sea made Happy for- 
sake the peace and quiet of a home 
in Ohio for the more varied life of a 
Midshipman. In preparation for a naval 
career he put in a year at Marion In- 
stitute, and arrived at the Academy with 
a Southern accent and a collection of 
photographs of a number of Alabama 

Never to worry about the present and 
to let the future take care of itself is al- 
most religion with "As." This trait, to- 
gether with a ready wit and a disposition 
as mild as a Mediterranean evening, am- 
ply justifies the sobriquet "Happy," con- 
ferred on him early in Plebe year by his 
doting sea daddy. 

Except for a skirmish with the Skinny 
Department, youngster year, Happy has 
always been several jumps ahead, although 
he has experienced that supreme aca- 
demic thrill of pulling sat. In the realm 
of athletics, "As" has confined his atten- 
tion to wrestling and the radiator club. 

To all who know him, Happy is a gen- 
tleman, but above all a true friend. Here's 
luck to you, Hap. 



Portland, Maine 

Out of the frigid glare of the North- 
ern Lights comes this mighty little 
man, bringing with him a "Life of 
Napoleon," one mandolin, and a decided 
Maine accent. Mingling with the rebels 
made him lose most of the accent, but 
Nick is a foxy lad and he always stopped 
before he lost the mandolin. One of the 
few men who recognized the merit of 
that Epitome, Bowditch, which, aided by 
his Life of Napoleon, made academics a 
veritable sea of roses and bed of ease, it 
was only by the expenditure of great ef- 
fort and much boning of the "Cosmo" 
that Nick escaped starring. 

Although he resembled Napoleon in 
stature, he could put Michelangelo on the 
spot any time when it comes to drawing. 
If this Navy had all the ships in com- 
mission that Nick has drawn for the Log, 
something would have to be done about 
finding sufficient water to float them in. 

At various intervals he would sally 
forth and do a little dragging. Not that 
he was a Red Mike — far from it — but, 
like the lightning, he never stayed long 
in the same place.

"foe" "Bushie" 

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 

This business of enumerating, com- 
memorating, tabulating, or fabricating 
a roommate's virtues, abilities and out- 
standing characteristics is sometimes dif- 

Quiet, but that's all right because who 
likes a noisy person; reserved, but where 
would one be if all one's resources went 
at once? Pretty savvy, if you exclude 
Math, juice, steam and ordnance. 

Good-natured and always smiling, and 
that's a good asset any time. This addi- 
tion to an already forceful personality 
has carried him far in "affairs de coeur" 
because he is constant — never more than 
one serious love a leave, but then he has 
only had about seven since the beginning 
of his career here. Before that we can- 
not vouch for his constancy. 

Athetically, his natural aptitude and 
liking for the oars and shells led to his 
being selected for captaincy of the light- 

Last and most important, the thing that 
makes this matter most acceptable to the 
press is the never-failing answer to the 
question, "How is he, this Bush?" Sim- 
ple and concise, the response is always 
the same, "good egg."

"]im" "Mark" "Clem" 

Nashua, New Hampshire 

Where 're you from, mister? New 
Hampshire, sir. What are you 
famous for? Nothing in particular, sir. 
Well, anyway, Jim is a rather quiet, con- 
scientious chap with a big heart and a 
ready smile. The academics bothered him 
quite a bit, but his persistency finally 
pulled him through. Although not a star 
athlete, he always took a great interest 
in sports and usually had a good work- 
out to his credit at the end of the day. 
He was a strict "Red Mike" for over two 
years and then he about faced and be- 
lieved there was safety in numbers. 

Jim is pretty "reg" but we'd never ac- 
cuse him of being a greasoir. His mili-

back, but once he straightened that out 
he had a carriage to be proud of. He

"Jack" "Sampson" "Homer" 
Newberry, Michigan 

From the wilds of Northern Michigan 
he came, to cast his lot with other 
sea-minded men. His lot has been cast, 
and now, but not until now, he gathers 
his laurels. And truly he merits them, 
as he has been unusually successful with 
academics and other ogres. Most first 
sections know only too well his confident 
smile, as he prepares to do battle with 
some confounding problem. His ability 
is almost uncanny, and to the casual ob- 
server it would appear that he did much 
practicing on the side, but we can vouch 
that this is not the case. 

Nor are "Sampson's" activities limited 
solely to academics. He has done well as 
a "pin pusher," reads a large amount of 
literature, and is strongly attracted to 
music. He is not the typical Red Mike 
that one would suspect him to be, but 
often appears at hops and other social 
functions. In plain words, he is an all- 
around good sport. 

May the Navy be good to you, Jack, and 
may your days as a Naval officer be long 
and prosperous. May good fortune fol- 
low you all your days, as it has through 
your career as a midshipman.

Dan heard the call of the sea, and left 
his home in Minnesota to join the 
rest of us. Perhaps the lakes, or a de-

He has never had any trouble with aca-

Although an enthusiastic follower of all 
sports, no sport to him can equal baseball. 
He has played on all teams, from com- 
pany to varsity, and that very well. 

Dan has a great liking for reading, and 
seems to find a lot of time to follow this 
inclination. Always ready for an argu- 
ment, friendly, you understand, he will 
take either side of any question. 

It is his great ambition to fly. There 
is no doubt that his ambition will be 
realized, since it is not possible to fail 
with determination such as he has. 

Although not a "snake," Dan certainly 
is not a Red Mike. He is always to be 
seen at hops, usually not alone. During 
these four years he has proven himself 
a most likable fellow and the best of 
friends. He carries with him our sincere 
wishes for his success which we know 
he will obtain.

Bath, Maine 

Henry's choice of a naval career was 
not a strange one, for he was born 
and bred on the rocky coast of Maine. 
A penchant for technical subjects and 
summers spent afloat gave him the cor- 
rect foundation on which to begin. Com- 
ing to the Academy was merely the logi- 
cal step for him, and he took it without 
undue effort. His interests are all linked 
up in some way with things nautical. 
Crew is his sport, and he has been an im- 
portant factor in Academy crews for four 
years. The Poughkeepsie Regatta was 
one of his ambitions. 

Quiet and reserved in manner, he is the 
possessor of an unfailing sense of humor 
which, combined with a true sense of pro- 
portion, brought him through Plebe year, 
youngster cruise, and all academics, with 
equanimity. Loyalty, friendliness and an 
ever-readiness to help us in our difficulties 
are attributes which will ever make him 
a good companion. Four years of asso- 
ciation with him through the various 
phases of Academy life have shown us 
that which makes an excellent shipmate 
and a staunch comrade.

"]uan" "Johnny" 

San Juan, Porto Rico 

Juan hails from Porto Rico, "the Isle 
of Enchantment," and he has in his 
character all the romance, gallant air and 
politeness to be found in a colony of old 
Spain, and all the idealism, vigor and 
practical ability to be found in this same 
colony of new America. 

The first thing one notices about Juan 
is his likability. It doesn't take much 
effort to be his friend, and it's an effort 
well worth making. To be his intimate 
friend, in the sense of having his fullest 
confidence, is not quite so easily attained, 
as he is a bit wary and trusts all society 
only up to a certain point. 

Johnny is a great sportsman and lover 
of athletics, and knows everything of im- 
portance about the world of sport. He 
won his numerals Plebe year in water 
polo and youngster year in boxing, show- 
ing his loyalty by sewing both awards on 
the same sweater. 

Good nature, an eye for beauty, smart 
appearance, love of fun, and good sense 
are valuable to anyone, and combined 
as they are in John they insure for him 
a very successful future.

A few service traditions and a penchant 
for navigation made Doug sally forth 
from the desert country of Arizona to 
land nearer the sea. Just then an R. O.

Doug's several characteristics are mar- 
velously compatible. He claims he would 
have been a lawyer; at times he had 
thought of being a doctor. In a drawing- 
room he is always at ease. Doug, too, 
might have been a diplomat. But more 
than anything, this young man was at- 
tracted by the call of the sea, and — we 
think — he is to be one of our future ad- 

At Annapolis Mac has been tremen- 
dously successful. Friendships were al- 
ways awfully easy to make. The more 
important matter of academics means 
much to many, but to Doug was just an- 
other part of the regulations. Regulations, 
to him, too, were always easy to observe 
— and never with a criticism. Thus, years 
have come and gone in which a lot of 
things have been accomplished. Now 
we are looking forward to a famous fu- 
ture life.

Catskill, New York 

Harry entered the Academy after 
many experiences upon the water- 
ways of the Hudson. In fact, small boats 
so intrigued him that oftentimes during 
Plebe summer one would find him the 
leading light in a little party on the 
Severn. This love of boats and boating 
has been educated until it now encom- 
passes all types of ships. 

Athletically speaking, Harry hasn't had 
much of a chance to show his prowess be- 
cause of frequent trouble with the Aca- 
demic Departments. He has shown 
potential strength, however, in class and 
company meets; nearly every afternoon 
finds him in the pool or gym, working 
out. Swimming and soccer, in season, are 
his chosen sports. 

Harry's social life at the Academy has 
been confined mainly to the bright-light 
district of Crabtown, meaning a Saturday

Finding little trouble in accustoming 
himself to Academy ways he soon became 
very much interested in athletics. After 
being a member of the Plebe varsity foot-

ball was much more to his liking, and 
since then he has "lived" baseball during 
all seasons of the year. Starting without 
any box experience he has developed into 
one of the best of Navy's pitchers. 

Academics were of little trouble to 
Lefty, in fact reading short stories was 
preferred to boning an easy math assign- 
ment. He has always had a deep interest 
in all functions, whether a hop or an

to his happy existence, and much and

"Herb" "Biff" 

Huntington, West Virginia 

A mountaineer by birth and a sailor

He is most prominent for his ability to 
maintain a high standing in the class. 
Secondary to this, but by no means a 
negligible quantity, is his batting average 
for dragging. Boxing, lacrosse and foot- 
ball have all made their contributions in 
producing a model Academy product. 

As an officer, an unlimited future awaits 
him, for he has mastered many of the 
necessary qualities, and there remains only 
experience to complete the finishing touch. 
Two years in college sent him to us a 
polished gentleman, placing him in that 
position toward which we all strive. Fol- 
lowing him closely in his career are his 
informality and ready friendliness, which 
serve as a reminder of his native haunts. 
With a grin he is ready for anything from 
giving consolation to pleasure. 



Huntington, West Virginia 

BOB is a big hairy-chested man from the 
happy hunting grounds of the sidehill 
murk, West, by God, Virginia. He came 
down from the hills with a year's experi- 
ence at Virginia Tech, and a big broad 
smile. He told us of the first, but the 
other spoke for itself. 

Due to a slight error in judgment on 
his first math exam, he didn't see his 
native heath again until youngster Septem- 
ber leave. But except for that ancient and 
honorable enemy, the Math Department, 
academics bothered him no more than the 
usual inconveniences. 

He has no vices. That is, he doesn't 
sing. He whistles a bit off key and studies 
Dago aloud, but he has a steady foot on 
the rail and an excellent judgment con- 
cerning the better things in life. There- 
fore, could he not be forgiven a multi- 
tude of sins? He will give you his shirt 
and lend you his pay; he will drag your 
girl's roommate in time of need and she 
will turn out to be the best-looking girl 
at the hop. The femmes can't keep their 
fingers out of his blond curly hair and he 
dislikes to say "no" to a sweet young 
thing. In spite of it, though, he is still 
happy and free.

road. But, all for naught, for Wash- 
ington's fairest femmes all faded from 
the picture one October afternoon of 
Plebe year, when he met the Ultimate 
Woman. Since then, his steadfastness in 
that regard, as well as in other things, 
would make a gyro stabilizer look like 
an autumn leaf in a wind tunnel. 

His friends have all searched futilely 
under his even regularities for at least 
the semblance of a minor vice, but even 
Europe, with its dry martinis and Tom 
Collins, found him adhering to "cafe 
con leche." Neighbors have long since 
given up trying to bum skags from him. 
There is one reward, at least, for 

Lacrosse is his sport, and he plays a 
man's game well.

"Charlie" "Chuck" "Bud" 

Washington, D. C. 

Charlie's ambition to sail the high seas 
has always been paramount. Long 
before that fateful day late in June of 
'28, when the first step toward attaining 
his aim was taken, he could tell you more 
about the Academy than most graduates. 
Four years, two European cruises with 
long stretches at sea, a near-drowning 
in the Blue Grotto, and three years on the 
sub-squad haven't dampened his ardor. 
His love of the Service and his untiring 
energy will carry him to the top. 

Gay moods, coupled with his almost 
natural tendency to break into song, 
make him, at times, a most desirable 
wife. At others — oh, well, who wants 
to study anyway? 

His substitutes for boning are: sleep, 
chess, backgammon, and, since youngster 
year, yearning for a West Coast cruise, 
which brings us to that always difficult 
subject of the fairer sex. Suffice it to say 
that all those who have been fortunate 
enough to be the recipients of some of 
of his prose compositions, masterpieces of 
literature, know his ability in this art.

''John L." 

Rockingham, North Carolina 

" A ND -^arse J im beat that nigger 'til 
A. he was daid." Thus our first intro- 
duction to the rebel-born, mammy-reared, 
and plantation-bred John L. The story 
is of no importance — but he's got all the 
ideas in his head that the quotation im- 
plies, such as Legree-esque overseers and 
rolling fields of cotton and pickaninnies 
playing around the barns and the coach 
rolling up to the door with the "marstuh 
back from the woe." Our John is a real 
Southern gentleman. 

But he's a tea houn'. Doggone his 
soul, he is. With his other Tarheel com- 
panions in crime, he makes the rounds 
of the Annapolitan parlors of a Sunday 
afternoon. Thus has he earned himself 
entree into all the back parlors and salons 
which, to the common chaff standing on 
the outside looking in, have assumed the 
proportions of a mystic shrine. 

He dabbles here and there in athletics. 
His chief claim to fame is as a swimmer, 
but he has, at various times, touched 
lightly, as becomes a Southerner, football, 
lacrosse, water polo, and the faintest sug- 
gestion of soccer. 


"Butch" "Tug" 

Hampton. Virginia 

Having lived within sight of Hampton 
Roads for the greater part of his 
life, "Butch" has felt the call of the sea 
for years. Not only that, but his Euro- 
pean jaunt aboard the tanker has given 
him a deep-rooted desire to go down to 
the sea in "battlewagons." 

The only reasons for hesitating to liken 
George to that master of his art, Romeo, 
are that the homes of today are sadly lack- 
ing in balconies and that we who know 
him believe that in him we have one who 
has "outmastered the master." His 
ability to make and hold friends is not 
limited to the fairer sex, either. That 
carrot-topped man adds to any gathering 
with his wit, stories, and general ability 
for making fun, especially after chow. 
Just ask the "General Board." 

"Butch" has spent his afternoons in 
much and varied style. He has derived 
the pleasures of life from atop the "win- 
dow seat" in the winter, and from the 
"ham-and-egger" squad in the spring. 
It is a very excellent system of training 
for June Week ; at least, it seems to have 
brought the desired results.

"Bob" "Gumbo" 

Fairmont, Minnesota 

Without a worry for the next day, 
Bob's attitude from the start has 
always been carefree and untroubled. De- 
termined to be himself, he has created and 
adhered to his own precepts, choosing at 
all times to be an individualist. Humor- 
ous and fun-loving, his ready wit has 
livened many dull and routine days by a 
well-timed joke or pithy observation. 

Gumbo is ever-willing to desert books 
for a good round-table discussion, being 
willing to argue any point, however ob- 
scure. But he is not unreasonable in his 
arguments, and after convincing proof, is 
willing to accept the viewpoint of an- 

Although he has never taken part in 
varsity sports, he has found diversion in 
swimming and tennis and has frequently 
participated in class competition. 

Bob is always ready to take what is 
coming to him, doesn't consider life too 
seriously, and thoroughly enjoys a good 
game of bridge. Those that make this 
big fellow's acquaintance in the future 
will be lucky; what better recommenda- 
tion can any man give?

"D. D." "Scotty" 

Waubay, South Dakota 

DD. is one of the reasons that biog- 
. raphies are written as it is almost 
impossible to successfully make a picture 
of him without writing a whole book. 

One could easily call him a deceiver — ■ 
it being implied, however, that he is prone 
to let you think what you will of him, 
leaving it up to you to uncover the man 
within. His outstanding achievement in 
that line was the way he hid a most un- 
usual brain, even going unsat a couple of 
times Plebe year to add pathos to the plot, 
but since he has become ultra-savvy, is 
able to star without endeavor. A world 
of travel has done much to round out his 
excellent mind, and in counting the num- 
ber of books he reads one loses all track. 

A lovable nature backed by congenial 
humor, an excellent personality combined 
with a Scotch nature and business brains 
that can't be denied, and a knowing con- 
sideration — these qualities join to form 
Scotty. Whether this "formation will be 
inside or outside" of the Navy remains 
to be seen, but we will place our bets 
and give odds in either field.

"Honky" "Bone" 

Rochester, New York 


iVJ_ from Rochester, New York, sir," 
was Honky's answer to the eternal query, 
"Where from"? Rochester, indeed, he 
hails from, and entered our midst with 
full hopes of success, having passed 
through such corridors of learning as 
Irondequoit High School, and Schad's 
War College in Washington. He justified 
all our hopes, and even pulled sat after 
eight weeks' stay in our "Health Home." 
This rather nipped his athletic aspirations 
in the bud, but his later work on the Var- 
sity Wrestling Squad has given our light- 
weights something to think about. 

Youngster year and second class year 
have only served to strengthen that 
monthly cry, "Bilged that Nav prof a 
point four again." What between his in- 
satiable desire for sleep and his vo- 
luminous mail, he seems well able to take 
care of his time. 

His desire to please is not confined to 
the fairer sex for his generous actions and 
his never-failing supply of good humor 
have won him a high place in our hearts 


"Jason" "Booford" 

Canandaigua, New York 

Jason first opened his eyes and viewed 
this vast world in New Orleans, but 
soon deserted, the rebel cause and cast his 
lot with the Yankees of New York. He 
came directly from Canandaigua High 
School to the Naval Academy, where he 
received his first taste of boning, so Plebe 
year was quite a shock. But soon he 
caught on to the wiles of the Academic 
Department and has never been in danger 
of falling into its clutches. 

He was quite an athlete in high school, 
and early Plebe year vented his kicks on 
the soccer field. But desirous of using 
his large size and weight to better advan- 
tage for Navy, he went out for water 
polo and is now a charter member of the 
"suicide club." 

He has a world of information at his 
fingertips, can always hand out the 
straight dope on any subject, can quote 
from any number of poets, and is truly 
a valuable friend. His easy-going and 
fun-loving ways, and his inherent, gen- 
tlemanly manners make us sure that he 
will be a good shipmate, an excellent of- 
ficer, and, above all, a real man.

"Ted" "Uncle" 

Lewes, Delaware 

BORN and brought up in the coastal vil- 
lage of Lewes, Ted as a tot was sent 
to gambol on the beach and longingly 
watch the warships as they passed out 
through the breakwater. Both of these 
hobbies have remained with him through 
these long years; he still likes to gambol, 
and the sea is still his first love. 

As uncle grew, his interest in the sea 
became deeper and after having finished 
high school it was decided that he spend 
a year at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute 
before entering the Naval Academy. So 
fate smiled on him, and in due course he 
became one of the forty per cent. 

In his life at the Academy, Ted al- 
ways showed his characteristic seaman-like 
attitude, and as a result stood well in aca- 
demic work and also in athletic activities. 
Though he has spent much time "win- 
ning his periscope" on the sub-squad, Ted 
found time to excel in soccer and rifle. 
Other moments have shown him to be an 
ardent lover of bridge, with Morpheus 
a close second. 

Ted's winning smile and sense of hu- 
mor have made him a host of friends dur- 
ing his academic career.

New York City 

This happy-go-lucky red head is from 
the wilds of Morningside Heights! 
After the eye had become accustomed to 
the fiery aura which announced Red's 
presence, the most noticeable feature was 
his carefreeness. The transition from the 
din and glare of the Great White Way 
to the sleepy old village of Annapolis did 
nothing to dull his vivacity. He has al- 
ways refused to take things too seriously. 

"Red" was far from wooden, and had 
little trouble keeping ahead of academics ; 
having once accomplished a fair amount 
of work he preferred to spend his time 
on something more animated than the sta- 
tical stability of a coal barge. For him, the 
quintessence of animation was the 
rhythmic ragtime of Duke Ellington's cot- 
ton king. 

"Red" regarded athletics with the same 
attitude. He tried everything from crew 
to soccer, and had a great time playing 
around. He never reached the state of 
suspended animation necessary for the 
Radiator Clubman, and was always busy 
at something.

"Jewel" "Hutnmy" 

Potlatch, Idaho 

Tall and lanky, with a Western drawl 
and an unbounded love of horses, 
Hummy came to us as a character from 
the old West. His way in academics has 
not been untroubled, but he has always 
managed to "get there." 

Four years have not been able to change 
him in the least. At intervals he brings 
to the surface some hidden aptitude and 
makes us marvel all the more. 

In the West he learned to shun the 
attentions of ladies, finding pastime in 
a glowing pipe and book or a canter along 
the trails. He has not abandoned the 
pipe whose mellow odor gives notice of 
his presence, but he has forgotten his un- 
founded prejudice against fair company. 
Now not a week passes but he is found 
slicking down his hair and scraping the 
stubble from his chin, to sally forth once 
more and try his wiles against the in- 
nocent and gaping girls. 

Taciturn at times, fluent at others, 
Julian has amused us for uncounted hours 
with legends of mountains, ranches, and 
gold mines. Level-headed and practical 
his counsel has proved invaluable.

When Wally entered these portals, 
the regimental snakes little thought

reptilian gentlemen. His feminine con- 
quests extend from Montreal to Miami, 
and are so numerous that he is faced with 
the necessity of listing them in a catalog 
to prevent disastrous mistakes in cor- 

When it comes to academics, our hero 
has had his share of the battle. But when 
the marks are posted, he always finds more 
than a 2.5. Dago has given him the big- 
gest fight, but hard work has overcome 
even that. 

An ear drum, broken Plebe year, kept 
Wally from becoming the water polo star 
he would have undoubtedly been other- 
wise. Even so, he is often seen in the 
pool going through a few fancy dives and 
other aquatic manoeuvers. Apparently he 
has benefitted by his wide experience on 
the beach at Miami. 

Whatever befalls Wally in the Service, 
he will always succeed, and will have the 
good wishes of his many friends.

"Awgee" "Jerry" 

Washington, D. C. 

Early in August, 1909, the capitol city 
was blessed by the advent of a little 
toothless lad, destined to bring many a 
tribulation to the heart of the Murphy 
family. But time changeth all things. 
This young man now stands six feet two 
in his toeless socks, has all his second 
teeth, and a sound body. The same can 
almost be said of his mind. However, 
his allotment of gray matter has served 
him well for he has never needed to bow 
to old Tecumseh. 

During his first two years, "Awgee" 
plodded his weary way to the boathouse 
each afternoon but seemed to escape 
"Old Dick's" eagle eye. He then tacked 
a few pounds onto his hitherto sparse 
frame and set out to bend the sweeps 
in earnest. His boat is usually in the 
money and he earned a Poughkeepsie trip 
by virtue of his labors second class year. 

Jerome has been active in numerous 
lighter Academy activities. Here we see 
him in a jovial vein and hanker for his 
jugular vein. His tin whistle and har- 
monica charm even the unappreciative 
audiences which so often gather within 
our cold grey walls.

When the world was awarded its

At that period "Booboo" began to do 
all he could to destroy himself. But

on his head several times in the most ap-

he succeeded in attaining the desired 
pinnacle and started on the same trend 
during Plebe year. Then the academics 
stepped in and nearly threw him for a

Joe's home port is Wilmington, North 
Carolina, where he found the sea and 
learned to love it. From there he sailed 
a steady course and landed here with his 
cargo of sunshine and good fellowship. 

We know that he will always be ready 
to give us a helping hand and cheery 
encouragement. Perhaps we have re- 
ceived grades too soon — or are unoffi- 
cially detained on Saturday afternoon — 
see Joe. So it was in wrestling — he said 
he never could but somehow he did, and 
to his own satisfaction, won that much 
coveted letter. Yes, when Joe is wres- 
tling they all stop — even the D. O.'s — if 
for that bout only. 

His numerous friends are the best in- 
dication of his charming personality and 
sincere character. Though always happy 
and seemingly carefree, under the surface 
he is a real man. 

If we could know such men as he every

"Willy" "BUI" 

Bluefield, West Virginia 

As you can tell from his walk, Bill 
came to us from the mountains — 
from West by — I mean West Virginia 
too! He decided the Navy needed some 
good men so he packed up and came to 
Annapolis. And the Navy got one. 
During five years of intimacy with him, 
the author has known him to get mad 
once, and that was caused by a long 
series of dire events leading up to the 
crisis. And savvy? He has not only 
pulled his wife out of all of his mathe- 
matical mudholes, but also part of '33. 

Bill's got a keen brain and a level head 
and is expected to make good out in the 
fleet — if we get commissions ! At any rate 
he won't be disliked for lack of personal- 
ity or character. Everybody in his class 
likes him and he certainly is easy to get 
along with — ask his wife! Willy has 
taken it and suffered for four years in 
serene silence, and this is about the only 
reward he's going to get — that is from 
here — but THE lady is waiting back home 
in Bluefield and, from all the dope, that's 
where Willy is going to get his reward.

You see pictured above a young man 
who has been both a trial and a di- 
lemma to his long-suffering roommate. 
For four years he has been a worry, and 
it is time someone else took charge. 

He has had quite a few sharp bouts 
with the academic departments, and has 
managed to fool them more than once 
when they thought they had him dead 
to rights. However, he is really rather 
savvy in most things, and has helped the 
writer to fathom many a problem and 
Steam sketch. Get him in a jovial mood 
sometime and he will tell you how he 
got four 2.5's on four exams, once upon 
a time. Incidentally, he expects to be

By glancing at his first and middle

handicapped by endeavoring to follow in 
the footsteps of his illustrious forbears.

What would you do if you were

and six months on the water. It seems 
to be a good philosophy to follow as 
he has prospered in wisdom and grace 
during these last few years under the

Big ideas about living are his ruling 
passion. Ever onward and upward with 
the might of his conscience to guide him, 
he has placed himself on a plane above 
us all. As proselyter for the reprobates 
he has kept them on a steady, narrow 
path and they have profited from the 
friendship. But after all he must be a

Bud is another of the famous volun-

loud in the praises of Philadelphia and 
the Athletics. One of his chief con- 
solations has been that we have jour-

For unknown but potent reasons, he

Springfield, Massachusetts 

Coming from Massachusetts, Bob 
proved capable of upholding the Bay 
State's standard of producing "savoirs." 
He had no trouble in conquering what 
proved to be the downfall of many. Al- 
ways up toward the top of his class, never 
worrying, never complaining, Bob is one 
of those lucky mortals who make the best 
of everything, and find contentment in a 
job well done. He whiled away most of 
his time in reading, and the library 
found him a frequent borrower. 

Those that knew Bob from Plebe year 
noticed a great change that was made in 
him. He was a misogynist pure and simple 
until a bit of femininity broke through 
his reserve during Second Class Sep leave. 

Athletically, Bob spent most of his 
time on the cross-country and track teams, 
helping his class teams win several times 
in both sports. 

Modesty is one of Bob's virtues; he 
never boasts of his conquests or accom-

doubt that to him will come the fruits 
deserved by one so upright and loyal.

"Bob" "Van" 

Clearfield, Pennsylvania 

Bobby was born in Clearfield way back 
when '09 was quite the thing. In 
case you don't see Clearfield on the map 
it's at the intersection of a couple of me- 
ridians. In his parlance it is much more 
— the only town in the United States 
having a nickel mill, facing south, with 
a red tile roof. 

Early in life he evidenced his natural 
bent toward things military, for one day 
when his mother wasn't home he shaved 
for the first time and found he had 
grown up, so he ups and joins the Cav- 
alry — the over, under, and through bri- 
gade, mostly over. Then he heard the 
call, saw the light and found himself 
in the Navy. 

Versatile and volatile — red heads, 
brunettes, blondes, Blake-Knowles and 
juice profs, they're all alike to him and 
he treats them all with the same warm 
affection. Good natured, energetic, am- 
bitious, enthusiastic, savvy, square-shoot- 
ing, by the way, he was on the rifle team

"Sam" "Whitef 

Stambaugh, Michigan 

Sam suddenly decided to throw in his 
lot with us back in the early summer 
of '28, so he managed to tear himself 
away from his beloved Upper Peninsula 
long enough to come down to find out 
what it was all about. If his loss meant 
as much to them, at that time, as it would 
now mean to us, there certainly must have 
been many, many mournful notes float- 
ing around in the old woods. 

Cheerfulness is his ever-present ally, 
but it is only a beginning. Behind it 
you'll find a very interesting seriousness, 
a keen perception, and a love of argu- 
ment that receives as much practice as 
can be made possible. A good imagina- 
tion, coupled with a liking for telling 
yarns, makes a combination that must be 
heard to be appreciated. 

An active mind usually means an ac- 
tive body, so rather than be an exception 
to the rule, you'll find him running 
around with the cross-country bunch in 
the fall, and out on the cinder path when 
Spring wends its way back again.

Montpelier, Ohio 

A few years ago Mac decided to quit 
tilling the soil, preferring to ride the 
furrows of the sea. Coming from Ohio 
it must have been the picture of a ship on 
the wall that led him to make such a 
drastic change. 

Mac first attracted the attention of the 
class by his ability as an oarsman in the 
Plebe Summer crew. In the fall, by vir- 
tue of his sterling performances on the 
Plebe varsity football team, he proved 
that football was another of his assets. 
Next Spring, he further enhanced his 
athletic reputation by winning a seat in 
the first Plebe boat. For the remaining 
three years he has devoted both Spring 
and Fall to football, proving himself a 
valuable addition to the team. 

His only enemy throughout the four 
years was the Academic Department; 
however, lesson assignments rarely inter- 
fered with whatever else there was to be 
done. In spite of that, he always kept 
his head above water, and was ever will- 
ing to lend a hand to a submerging class- 



Lenoir, North Carolina 

Born a Tarheel, Tut developed a pas- 
sion for the sea, and came to the 
Naval Academy. As he was from the 
South, he had developed a way with the 
fair sex which helped him to spend many 
a pleasant evening, while his natural 
prowess as an athlete kept him busy 
during the afternoon. 

In his high school days, and later at 
Duke University, King Tut was a star 
football player. Ever since he came to 
the Navy, he has been a big shot on 
the team, being captain during his first 
class year. Playing center, he caused our 
opponents lots of worry on the defensive, 
while on the offensive he was ripping 
great holes in their line. He was also 
an outstanding success in boxing, both 
on the Plebe team and on the Varsity. 

It is seldom that one finds a chap so 
reserved, and yet so greatly interested in 
the many amusing things of the world. 
His penchant was the singing of all sorts 
of funny songs, and the reading of po- 
etry, spending many of his leisure hours 
in that occupation. Tut is a man who 
combines a quiet nature with a real and

Toledo, Ohio 

Introducing the man who has en- 
dured our failings for three Academic 
years, Max Mather. "Max" has his own 
philosophy of life, a sort of "laissez 
faire," and judging from the number of 
his friends we should say that it works 
well. His interests are few: a smoke, a 
book, and a place to indulge both; a 
conversation on any topic, or an after- 
noon on the rifle range give an every- 
day picture of our roommate. 

And he has a way with the women ; 
ask anyone who frequented Dorchester 
on the Youngster Cruise. About the 
only times he betrays evidences of en- 
thusiasm are when spilling a yarn about 
the years spent in France, or when the 
conversation turns to rifles and hunting. 

Academically, he has been uncomfort- 
able but once. Usually he shows a versa- 
tility in treating all subjects alike and 
keeping a few jumps ahead in each. 
We know that this .is one chap that will 
get along, and we express the hope of 
many in wishing him good luck in future

"Red" "Indian" 

Richmond Hill, Long Island 

AN honest, hard working chap who 
sprang from the wilds of New York 
City, Red delights in argument, but never 
waxes angry. Always good natured, he 
can't hold a grudge longer than a few 
minutes at most. 

"How many days, Mister." Red 
spends a lot of his spare time thinking 
of leave when he can strut his stuff and 
give his version of the Navy Line. 

He has little trouble with Academics, 
and doesn't need to grind. The Steam 
Department got in a few good blows in 
the early part of his career here, but he 
has had the situation well in hand ever 
since. This leaves him time to devote to 
the various activities which go to make 
this school more than a mere institution 
of learning. 

Much water has passed over the dam 
since we first gazed at that flowing red 
hair, and heard that distinctive New 
York drawl, yet time has served only to 
confirm that first good impression. He 
will have little trouble if he only con- 
tinues to follow the good example he has 
set himself.

"Bill" "Dusty" 

Baltimore, Maryland 

AS A very small chap, Bill decided 
that when he had finished High 
School he would choose a college close 
to home. Of course, he's a Baltimore 
Boy, so naturally he came to the Naval 
Academy. Each year when the Academic 
Departments train their guns on the class 
of 1932, we're all certain that Davy 
Jones' Locker will be our fate, but not 
so with Bill. He merely shrugs his 
shoulders and says, "Shucks, now at Poly 
we did it this way," and that's why he's 
been wearing a star these last three years. 

When Spring comes and most of us 
turn poetic, Bill breaks out the old 
Lacrosse gear, lets out a blood-curdling 
ward whoop, and is off to crack some- 
body's skull. 

As a gentleman of true worth and 
versatile accomplishments, it is to Bill 
that we instinctively turn in time of 
trouble, whether it be a juice prob, a ring 
design, or "une affaire de coeur." To 
be his shipmate would be a privilege, but 
just to be his friend is a pleasure. It 
brings an appreciation of him by which 
we know him to be a real man. 




Youngstown, Ohio 

TO write a short hiography of "Monty," 
for whom so much can be said, is a 
difficult matter. For here is a man whose 
friendly disposition and fair dealing have 
made him liked and respected by upper 
classes, classmates, and under classes. 
For him academics have not always been 
easy, and a successful struggle for Christ- 
mas Leave in Youngster Year showed his 
ability to work when the occasion de- 
manded. Monty comes from the Queen 
City of the Mahoning and one glance 
at the portrait will explain why he usu-' 
ally returns from leave disorganized. 
Although one affair turned out badly, 
Monty sought solace in a pipe, turned 
philosopher, and is now (latest report) 
enthralled by another. Just how valuable 
a friend Monty is was revealed Second 
Class Summer when a hospital gold-brick- 
ing experiment back-fired. He has always 
been the finest fellow in the world with 
whom to do anything in the world. No 
success can be too great for what he de- 
serves, and we hope that wherever he at- 
tains it will be where we can continue the 
friendship so pleasantly begun.

"Jack" "Cap'n Bill" "Horse" 
Sumter, South Carolina 

FOUR years ago there came to the banks 
of the Severn a boy from the wilds 
of South Ca'lina. He was equipped by 
nature with habits of industry and sobri- 
ety, tempered with humor and good na- 

Jack's natural energy impelled him to 
become rather a workout hound, with the 
result that he is a valued member of the 
Gym and lightweight crew squads. 
Academically, too, Jack has always given 
a good account of himself, combining 
natural aptitude with a dogged conscien- 

Still another facet of his nature is his 
love of travel. For months preceding 
each cruise he was deeply engrossed in 
travel literature. The knowledge gained 
in this manner was freely distributed and 
proved very helpful to all his friends. 

In all, Jack's accomplishments during 
his years at the Academy have exceeded 
even the most sanguine predictions made 
by the editor of ye home town bumwad. 
May his future career be as bright as his 
many friends have reason to believe it 
will be. 


Bishopville, South Carolina 

Pete is a shining example of the home 
town boy who made good. Coming 
from a small South Carolina town he was 
at first a little pessimistic about his chances 
of success. However, he has accomplished 
far more than even so sanguine a prophet 
as the editor of his home town bumwad 
dared predict, and his savvyness was a 
benefit to many less fortunate classmates 
who never found him too busy to explain 
a knotty problem or sketch. 

Along with his academic ability and 
common sense, Pete has a sense of humor 
and carefree manner that have won many 
friends. Always cheerful and gay, he has 
never been known to have the blues. 
"Why worry" and "Run and let run" 
expresses his philosophy, while his con- 
tinuous good humor and wit make it im- 
possible for anyone to remain angry with 
him more than a few minutes at a time. 
If Pete decides to enter the Service, he 
will be a welcome member of any ward 
room group.

"Scotty" "Gil" 

Peoria, Illinois 

WHAT would the Navy do without 
"Scotty"? Plebe year he started 
to repair things, and has been at it ever 
since. Nothing ,is too great or small to 
claim his attention — and it holds no in- 
terest if there is nothing wrong with it. 
His desk, locker, and strongbox are full 
of gadgets and tools for repairing, from 
a watch to a radio. The password to 
his room is "Scotty, there is something 
wrong with my. . . ." There is no other 
known method of arousing him, but this 
method has never failed. 

Perhaps the most outstanding charac- 
teristics we think of when someone men- 
tions "Scotty" is his unfailing good 
nature. Practical jokes he takes in good 
part, and "renders unto Caesar that which 
is Caesar's." If anyone was dragging and 
had the guard, it would be "Scotty, how's 
to take my watch?" And the invariable 
answer: "Sure." 



"Munny" "Rosy" "Inez" 

Monroe, Louisiana 

A gentleman from the South, always 
with that ruddy complexion. He 
says it is an accumulation of the sun's rays, 
picked up on a farm at home, and we 
believe him. His speech belies his place 
of origin, however; in fact, we cannot 
attach it to any one section of this great 
country. This fact fits his wanderings, 
made at various and sundry leave periods. 

In him we find a weli-rounded man. 
He is able and willing to do the many 
tasks placed before him. In his scho- 
lastic work, although never fortunate 
enough to achieve a place among the 
stars, he has acquired commendable suc- 
cess. Athletically, we can pronounce a 
similar verdict. His efforts and accom- 
plishments point toward a career full of 
happiness and fine achievements. 

His ambition is to become an aviator; 
we surmise that this is the result of Sec- 
ond Class Summer. His thoughts are 
all on the time when he will be able 
to go as the wind, wherever he pleases. 
It's all right, we know, for Nature and 
Munny will take their courses, and John 
will secure that extra bit of insignia.

"Scotty" "Don' "Tommy" 

Richmond, Virginia 

Every now and then you run into a 
chap who knows his job and is more 
or less of an authority on any subject 
bearing on it. Don is one of them. He 
has a great liking for all things Naval, 
and he has read most of the books on 
the Station that have anything at all to 
do with the Navy. Anyone wanting the 
dope on Naval affairs usually gets hold 
of him. 

After 4:30 every day Don turns his 
attentions to the more strenuous side of 
a Midshipman's life. In the Fall 
he can be found booting a soccer ball 
around among the Varsity soccer squad. 
Then, in the Winter, the swimming pool 
claims his attention, while Spring usually 
catches him doing things with small boats 
or lacrosse sticks. This, together with 
Don's attitude that nothing is worth do- 
ing unless done well, doubtless has some- 
thing to do with the fact that he stands 
well up near the top of the class. 

All the above is really secondary, 
though. The thing that makes Don such 
an agreeable roommate is the fact that he 
carries out the old Virginia Tradition — 
he is a gentleman.

Los Angeles, California 

Bill is rather a mystery to all except 
the fortunate few who know him 
very well. He has a ready smile for 
everyone, but only a few know the per- 
son behind the smile. Easily amused, 
though rather reserved, hard working 
along his many lines of endeavor, and 
serious at times; yet he possesses a rare 
sense of humor, and the best disposition 
in the world. 

As soon as Bill is freed from Henry's 
clutches, and "submarine school," his 
spare time is taken up with gymnastics, 
working with Mr. Mang's "Greek Gods." 
Although he has suffered a broken nose, 
he can boast more than ordinary prowess 
in his chosen sport. 

Academically, Bill takes things more 
or less as they come, without having any 
serious difficulties. His knowledge of 
"Juice" and Radio have not only helped 
his standing, but benefitted the Radio 
Club, where he spends a great deal of 
his spare time. In "Dago" he has been 
closely pursued by that Department ever 
since he entered the Academy, but has 
managed to elude them every term.

"Peter" "Pav" 

Rittman, Ohio 

Anew star appeared in our heavens 
four years ago — not a real star, but 
just Milton from the constellation Ritt- 
man. In finding his way here he fol- 
lowed no gravitational law, but simply 
drifted in. Western Reserve University 
with its chemistry, biology, and other 
pre-medical bores made him decide that 
breaking bones must be more fun than 
mending them. This idea, backed by 
others of more patriotic origin, won the 
day for the Navy and here he is. 

"A vigorous youth, with lots of dash, 
daring, and dexterity." This phrase sums 
up his outward characteristics. It tells 
why his roommate suffers with envy every 
time the mail comes and why he dons 
his monkey jacket as a matter of routine 
on Saturday nights. The dexterity part 
explains the existence of a number of 
rather strangely constructed but useful ar- 
ticles in his room. These are products of 
an inborn desire to invent which often 
crops out in spare moments. In spite 
of these drawbacks, Milton sails smoothly 
through academics without a care and 
never a moment in the ranks of the

"Frank" "Country" "Sam" 

Lenning, Virginia 

Squirrel hunting was beginning to 
grow tiresome; the farm was becom- 
ing boring; the University of Virginia 
was just another place to study. It be- 
gan as an idle fancy, and the more he 
thought of it the more his interest grew. 
This fancy developed into an appoint- 
ment, then entrance examination, and fi- 
nally the oath. 

Plebe Summer, with its infantry and 
seamanship, was at first bewildering. 
With a thirst for knowledge, and a keen 
desire to learn, these obstacles were soon 

Outside of Steam, the Academic De- 
partments never made a threat. When 
necessary, he studied hard ; otherwise he 
took things as they came, trying to make 
them as enjoyable as possible. 

Because of his friendship and good 
humor, his place will be hard to fill. He 
never refused a debate, and always 
showed the utmost respect for the opin- 
ion of others. When he was wrong he 
cheerfully admitted it, and laid claim to 
that much additional knowledge. 

Here's to a most successful career in 
the Service, Frank, we know it is in you.

"Tommy" "Shorty" 

Columbus, Ohio 

Hail the nonchalant, affable fellow 
from Ohio. Naturally one should 
be proud of his home state, but Tommy 
stretches this fact beyond its elastic limit, 
and makes the one-time territory of Con- 
necticut the greatest resource on earth. 
Still, there is always a little good in the 
worst of us, and, too, a little bad in the 
best of us. 

Tommy's best motto is "What's the 
use of worrying, it never was worth 
while." And he uses it in an efficient 
manner. Days may come and days may 
go, but classes go on forever. When 
examinations come around, there is Tom- 
my, absorbing in a few hours the month's 
work, with the optimist's expectation of 
hitting them. He is, likewise, fond of 
sports, boxing being his favorite. In 
collaboration with this, pre-reveille jogs on 
Farragut Field and their resulting disturb- 
ances aid much to the quiet sleep of oth- 

Yes, Tommy makes a wonderful wife.

"Whale" "Doc" 

Clinton, Connecticut 

Wilford started out in life as a 
chubby little boy running along 
the shores of Connecticut hunting "musk- 
rats" and tearing up the countryside in 
general. He grew up, a boy of the soil, 
the pride of the Podunk, and as a boy of 
the soil and as just another pride of some 
Podunk, he came to Crabtown and be- 
came one of us. 

Plebe year was one "of those things" 
to Wilford, and with the combination of 
a glorious past and a hazy but glittering 
future he managed to dream the year 
away. He had the redeeming habit of 
loud snoring, however, which kept him 
awake enough of the time to do his bon- 
ing. His lithe form and graceful move- 
ments prompted those about him to dub 
him "Whale." 

Inertia characterized "Whale" in his 
endeavors. Football and wrestling were 
the outlets for his primitive instincts. 
It took him some time to get rolling, but 
now that he has built up momentum, 
thanks to the same inertia, he is going to 
be a mighty hard man to stop.

"John" "Admiral'' 

Adrian, Michigan 

Some of us merely stumble into the 
Service for want of something better 
to do. Others, because of an inherent 
love of the sea and all that it stands for, 
shape their whole scholastic career with 
that one end in view. "Admiral" is one 
of that more fortunate second group. 

One of the faults that our contempora- 
ries find with the Naval Academy is the 
tendency towards narrow professionalism, 
neglecting the so-called cultural side, 
which a wide range of well-chosen books 
may instill. John is not making that 
sacrifice. After enough time has been 
spent on the technical books to attain 
better than average grades, the other 
phases of symmetrical mental and physi- 
cal development are well taken care of. 

The veneer of a gentleman "by act of 
Congress" only will soon wear off under 
the influence of the intimate contact to 
which roommates are subjected. When 
it hasn't, under all the vicissitudes of an 
Academy career, rest assured that the prod- 
uct is sterling, and a friend and shipmate 
for whom to be thankful.

After a short argument over a few cus- 
pids Bill was launched, in more ways 
than one, on his career. Plebe year he 
became convinced of his eligibility for the 
radiator club and he has remained a 
charter member since then. 

Strange to say, his interests did not 
turn to the other sex. Of course, there 
have been spasms, but nothing to be re- 
garded as lasting or serious. Youngster 
year old man Calculus formed an associa- 
tion (although strictly forbidden in Navy 
regs) with the hospital. The cessation 
of bridge games and some overtime acro- 
batics on a slide rule soon righted this 
little matter, and during the ensuing 
terms his academic equanimity has been 
carefully preserved. 

As long as there is a Service there will 
be "Bills" who will help a man just this 
once, and it is such people who make that 
Service what it is.

From the rolling plains of the Illini 
and fair green campus of Champagne 
Luke came East and he liked the Navy 
so well that he decided to spend four 
years on Severn's shore. 

In the fall you will see him on Farragut 
Field playing touch football and in the 
spring he will be out there with a base- 
ball glove or a lacrosse stick, but in win- 
ter you will have to travel over to the 
pool where he can only be found under 
several feet of water which he has come 
to regard as the only life-supporting 
element. If you should see a hand 
clutching a water-polo ball emerge sud- 
denly from the briny depths followed by 
a triumphant face, you can be sure that 
it is Luke, scoring again for Navy. 

He will tell you that you should not 
take the femmes too seriously, but a thing 
of beauty is a joy forever and Luke is 
sure to be found dragging to the next 
hop. His eyes still turn toward the West,

After sixteen years of restless roam-

more dropped anchor in his home 
port. The lazy warmth of Samoa, the 
chill of London's fogs, the roar of New 
York's subways could not rob the Navy 
of a rightful son. Could it have been 
otherwise? Thus Barry gained his sunny 
disposition in the Southland — his intel- 
ligence in the ancient Halls of West- 
minster — his salty swagger in Crabtown. 

It was but natural for him to turn to 
the water for a chosen field. Unlimited 
energy and a fighting heart have won his 
place on the Water Polo team. His 
strange maneuvers have worried many a 
back through the wintry Saturday after- 
noon. Yes, sir, Barry is a good man to 
have around when a couple of tons of 
beef are trying to drown you, and his 
natural swimming ability has added many 
points to our swimming scores. 

We have watched his transition from 
the reddest of "Red Mikes" to a devotee 
of the femmes. But, still he dreams on 
of blue skies and is very happy. In fact, 
Barry gets a big kick out of life.

Stanford, Kentucky 

WE say "Kentucky" but Bill is more 
of a cosmopolitan by nature and 
travel. Nautically intended and adven- 
turously inclined, with hardly a thought 
for the future, Bill bid farewell to the 
tall Blue Grass and his wanderings carried 
him far and wide. Bill dreamed of 
bigger things while plying the seas along 
the West Coast and Plebe Summer found 
him in our midst. 

Since we met Bill, he has proven him- 
self a man well worth knowing. He is 
congenial and sociable, never down- 
hearted, and always willing to lend a 
helping hand. He will lend you his last 
"skag" and make you feel as if you were 
doing him a favor by accepting it. 
His pet theme is his aversion toward 
work, on which he will argue with any- 
one. Being a man of leisure, he is too 
busy for athletics, but like all gentlemen 
of that class, his abilities have found an 
outlet in the field of literature. 

All in all he's a good pal — the kind 
of a fellow you like to have around when 
you're in a tight place. The best that 
the world can offer, Bill.

Coming from down ,in Old Kentucky, 
Bob has proved himself a true and 
loyal product of the sunny South. Tact, 
generosity, unfailing good humor, and a 
natural tendency to remain quiet while 
the other fellow talks are his outstanding 
characteristics. He is one of those rare 
fellows whom you meet and like, and the 
longer you know him the greater your 
liking for him. 

During these years at the Naval 
Academy "Bob" has found many lines of 
endeavor outside the realm of athletics 
by which to entertain himself and at the 
same time further activities and help those 
of us who are less gifted to enjoy life. 
His remarkable talent and ability to repro- 
duce on the drawing board beautiful 
girls known or imagined, and his ability 
as a cartoonist make him a valuable mem- 
ber of the Log Staff. 

It is only necessary to know Bob to 
account for his many friends. Striking

"Dick" "The Adams" 

Ambridge, Pennsylvania 

From Dick's earliest moment, avia- 
tion has been his chief thought. 
Added to his ambition to wear wings 
was a love of the sea, and combining 
these two, it was but natural that he 
should decide to become a naval aviator. 
So he ventured away from the Ohio 
River to the labyrinths of Annapolis and 
the Naval Academy. 

A talent for music, combined with 
a goodly amount of clown in his 
make-up, has made him a member of 
the Orchestra and Glee Club. Not 
that he confined his attention entirely to 
things inside the Academy; far from it. 
Just ask some of the Annapolis fair sex 
about those moonlit evenings second class 
summer, and watch them blush. 

In any undertaking to get up a smoker 
or show of any sort, Dick was one of the 
moving spirits, and while there are a. lot 
of things of which we are not sure, we 
know one definitely. That is, if Dick 
does as much to make himself agreeable 
aboard ship as he has done around here, 
his ship will be fortunate to have him.

Athens, Georgia 

Admiral is a quiet, modest boy from 
the balmy climes of Georgia, land 
of peaches and stone mountains. Being a 
Navy Junior, the call of the sea was 
strong within him, and he came to the 
Naval Academy as a matter of course. 
If you don't think he knows his lan- 
guages, have him relate to you how he 
used his French to talk the caretaker of 
the Spanish summer royal palace into 
showing him and a group of his class- 
mates through the interesting royal home, 
while in Barcelona on his youngster 
cruise. His importance can further be 
realized when you know that the Officer 
of the Deck almost broke out the side- 
boys, band and even the captain for him, 
for this promising midshipman had been 
returned from a visit to his father's flag- 
ship in an admiral's barge. 

Admiral's aspirations are not conflicting 
— a career in the Navy for him; truly an 
admiral-to-be. Is it necessary to wish 
him a happy voyage? We don't think so,

Glen Ridge, New Jersey 

Bill got the jump on us as regards 
knowledge of Annapolis by prepping 
at Bobbie Werntz's for a year. Maybe 
that is the reason Academics have never 
bothered him. At any rate he always 
stays well above the 3.0 mark with plenty 
of time left over to read all the good 
magazines and books, though we'll admit 
he doesn't use many of his spare moments 
writing to the fair sex. Yet he always 
drags — Bill can keep more friends on one 
book of stamps than any other man I 

Bill started his love for the sea "way 
back when" by taking a deep interest in 
crew. When he found out he was too 
light for the Varsity and too heavy for 
the Lightweights, he set his eye on crew 
managership and attained that difficult 
position after months of hard work. 

Here, Bill, are a few reminders for the 
evenings in the future around the fire- 
place — just remember plebe summer in

women — 4340 — Aviation Summer. 


"Squilgee" "Ossy" "Pat" 

Ottumwa, Iowa 

Truly one of the "forty percent" is 
Squilgee. Comfortably non-reg, more 
than savvy, and never known to be 
despondent or gloomy, he has been the 
best of companions these varied years. 

The first thing he did when he joined 
the Navy was to break his ankle, but, in 
spite of that, he has played basketball 
every year and played it rather well at 
that. But for all his athletics and savvi- 
ness, Squilgee's weakness is women. Not 
woman, friend, but women. He has that 
happy faculty of being quite in love with 
whomever he happens to be dragging at 
the time, and the beauty of it is they 
seem to like it. Maybe it's because he 
can always make you laugh with him. 
Get him to tell you about Rome, or New 
York, or Copenhagen or some place, be- 
cause if anything ever happens in a town 
it always happens when he's in the middle 
of it. 

When Squilgee refers to "back home" 
he means that thriving community of 
Ottumwa, and though most of us have 
never been there, it must be a pretty fine 
town to produce the man we've all known

"foe" "J" "Smoky" 

Sanford, Maine 

All roads lead to Sanford! Even 
though Joe hails from that bleak 
and barren (ouch) yet beautiful state of 
Maine, we nevertheless caught him from 
Alabam', and some of his southern lingo 
still sticks in spite of it all. From the 
day he entered, Joe has made and been 
a true friend to us all and where physical 
stature was not so helpful he has used 
his unrivaled personality to pull himself 
through academic difficulties and the 
fairer sex, both necessary evils. 

In sports, baseball seemed to draw 
most of his interest, and in this line he 
has proved himself to be a pitcher of no 
mean ability. Joe has tossed 'em up for 
the Company and 'Varsity, to which he 
graduated as early as Youngster year. 
Any Sunday afternoon, when not drag- 
ging, you would find him burning up the 
golf course, playing havoc with old man 
par. Then, when not indulging in out- 
door life, you might find this man beating 
out a fanciful tune on the piano. 

Whether in the Navy or out, Joe, we 
will always look on you as a 4.0. 'Tis 
a lucky crowd that will get you as a

"Cy" "Cavvy" "Charlie" 

Boston, Massachusetts 

Cy hails from that town that is famous 
for its patriots, dear old "Bawston" 
— is it any wonder that he joined our 
ranks of "Pampered Pets" as a brave 
defender of his country? 

It is said that every man has his bad 
qualities as well as good, but we have 
failed in finding much of evil in Cy, who 
is an addition to any gathering with his 
hearty laugh and ever-ready smile. 

Cy has had no difficulties with aca- 
demics, taking nothing too seriously and 
breezing along with plenty of velvet. In 
an athletic way he has confined himself 
to baseball, although any winter's after- 
noon he may be found over on the squash 
courts. A good tennis player, and you 
should see that man hit a golf ball. 

He has his own ideas of femmes in 
general and one in particular. True, he 
may appear outwardly unconcerned, but 
a close observer can easily see that there 
must be some reason for him to make 
such a rush for the mail. 

A true friend — one of the best. We 
shall always remember "Charlie" as a man 
among men and a sport among sports.

Morristown, New Jersey 

A sunny day in June brought this man 
to us, with an ever-present smile, a 
wealth of good fellowship, and an in- 
domitable spirit. 

That smile well indicates his jovial per- 
sonality, but that does not mean that he 
takes all things lightly. As we all know, 
when matters of importance are concerned, 
he is seriousness personified. Owen 
doesn't mind work — he actually likes it. 
The minutes that escape his eagle eye are 
few. For him, a minute means sixty 
seconds of work, whether in the class- 
room or in the gym. You can find him 
most any afternoon in the gym, imitating 
gracefully the antics of South African 
monkeys as he swings hither and yon on 
the flying rings, falling on head or feet 
with equal cheerfulness, always trying 
some new stunt, and usually mastering it. 
You will find him like that — give him the 
breath of a chance, and the thing is done, 
and done well. 

You will find him a very likable chap ; 
he possesses all those desirable qualities 
that make a capable officer. We predict 
a bright future for you, old man. 


"Greg" "Richy" 

Petersburg, Virginia 

THIS serious-minded individual hails 
from good old Virginia, yes, suh! 
He has shown us why the Cavalier State 
has reason to be so justly proud of her 

We fear that he has a serious case of 
heart trouble, but he insists that his spare 
moments are too valuable to be given to 
the ladies — (which we doubt). Just drift 
over to MacDonough Hall most any after- 
noon, and you will see Greg hard at work 
on the parallels, improving his execution. 

When it comes to academics, Richy 
can hold his own, too. "Gee, that steam 
prof gives low marks. I received only 
a 3.4 today." Greg claims that he can 
get more out of a "Cosmo" than he can 
from a textbook, and if we may judge 
by his marks, his theory must be ap- 
plicable — to him. Just ask him anything 
about the service; he's a walking bureau 
of information. 

In a few years you will find him com- 
manding one of our new subs — his am- 
bition realized. The fleet will find him 
a welcome addition; his seniors, a com- 
petent officer; his associates, a gentleman 
in every respect.

He is an earnest follower of all ath-

Independence, Kansas 

Becoming dissatisfied with life in the 
wilds of the Cyclone State, Eddie 
joined the Navy, thereby taking the first 
step toward Crabtown. His early train- 
ing was received chasing natives and rab- 
bits through the wheatfields of Kansas 
This probably explains why the Ac. De- 
partments and the D. O.'s have not suc- 
ceeded in catching up with him. Never 
worried, sometimes near the edge of a 
2.5, yet each year he manages to pull sat 
without apparent effort. 

As for women, he has taken his fun 
where he found it, and has learned a lot 
from them all. He falls hard, and 
though he's recovered each time so far, 
some day he may completely collapse and 
meet his final doom. Although spending 
much of his time writing to his numerous 
femmes, he finds time for boxing and 
track, not to mention the numerous covers 
he has drawn for The Log. 

Here's to you, Eddie. May your suc- 
cess in life be as great as has been your 
success during your four years as class- 
mate and roommate.

Kt ights! Action! Camera"! That's 

I 4 the old way of doing it, but the 
summer of 1928 was different; to use his 
own words, " Tis I in person, not a mo- 
tion picture." (No advance in prices.) 
Having spent the most tender years of his 
life around Boston, little wonder he de- 
cided to "go down to the sea in ships." 

Although his "figure serieuse" marks 
him as an idealist and a true appreciator 
of the arts, he has not been blind to other 
lines of worldly endeavor. 

Too much unofficial cross-country work 
from Upshur Road to the Rotunda ruined 
his chances for the varsity during Young- 
ster year, so the scene of his activities 
shifted to Mahan Hall midst the death 
moans of doomed men. 

For him an extra hour is either an 
hour of study, or an hour of enjoyment — 
enjoyment derived from reading the latest 
books on humor and poetry, or in com- 
posing a bit of poetry to his Inspiration — 
whoever that may be at the time. 

Happiness in life will surely be his; 
a life which the past predicts will be full 
to the brim.

Norwich, Connecticut 

It was the fulfillment of an ambition 
of some years' standing when Jack en- 
tered N. 3 gate as a candidate that un- 
forgettable day back in Plebe summer. 
When he was sworn in as a Midshipman 
he was a happy boy and he has remained 
that during his four years as a Midship- 

During Plebe summer Jack was wholly 
occupied with the strenuous business of be- 
ing a Plebe and had little time for other 
things. He found his stride, however, 
Youngster year. Hardly a week-end went 
by but Jack was found entertaining some 
member of the fair sex with a "line" 
surpassing that of the original "Snake." 
So many girls, upon hearing his name, 
say, "Oh, yes, I know Jack, etc.," that 
one wonders how one man can know so 
many of them. His explanation is that 
there is safety in numbers. 

Academics caused few worries for Jack. 
He was one of the boys who devoted 
much of their athletic ability to helping 
their company.

Portland, Oregon 

Here's one of the bulwarks of Navy's 
athletic prowess, as the champion 
shot-putter holder of the Academy record, 
and the outstanding lineman in Navy's 
forward wall. In the latter capacity he 
was the famous number 13, a rather un- 
lucky number for the opposing team. 
When we saw him start clicking second 
class year, we knew that one of the 
coach's line worries was over for the next 
two years. 

Back in 1928 he proved himself one 
of our best. His football, wrestling 
and track work of that year des- 
tined to him a big place in Navy's 
athletic history. And he fulfilled our 
fondest hopes. Youngster year his shot- 
putting endangered the Academy record, 
and second class year he shattered it with 
a good margin. 

Socially a self-styled Red Mike, Undy 
fascinated many members of the fair sex 
by that famous formula of the silent 
strong man, not to mention the magnetic 
effect of his wavy locks. An outstand-

"'""pEN thousand Swedes came through

who came through the trees at the great 
battle with the Academics bearing — "mid 
snow and ice, a banner with the strange 
device, 'Excelsior' !" Ever onward is an 
excellent phrase to describe the lad. One 
has to keep striving to reach the heights 
of achievement and popularity that this 
man from the Middle West has attained. 
But back to the plain facts. Earl did 
not arrive until late August of Plebe year. 
After the prairie dust wore off, and after 
the Dago Department gave up and de- 
cided to let him by, and following a hec- 
tic Youngster Cruise, he returned with 
one diag and a certain nautical cynicism. 
He has been taking everything in that 
manner ever since. 

He has hit his stride, and it is one that 
will carry him to great heights in the 
future. We wish him all success, but 
we know that our wishes though earnest- 
ly meant are really not necessary. He is 
of the stuff of which success is made, 
failure is not in him.

Mendon, Vermont 

Here we have an Army junior who 
forsook the sheltered existence of 
that service for a tempestuous life on the 
deep water. It seems that early in life he 
became interested in the "Old Sea," sail- 
ing ships, marline spikes, and all. For- 
gotten technical nomenclature such as 
clew-garnet, fore-to 'bo'line, and seeming 
intricacies like the lead of the mizzen 
to' gallant braces are familiar to him be- 
cause of early childhood misspent in bon- 
ing now useless books. 

Academics never gave him any trou- 
ble, 3.4's came too easily, and if it were 
not for time spent trying to become a 
Ford mechanic, a builder of ship models, 
and a connoisseur of old-time ballads he 
would have worn a star on his collar. 

In the line of sports we find him wres- 
tling in the fall and winter. In the 
spring he becomes one of the men that 
hold 'em and squeeze 'em, doing well 
with rifle, but pistol is his specialty. 

One who remembers him as a friend 
always finds him ready and willing to 
help, which, coupled with his ability for 
perseverance, will send him far along the 
road to success.

"Goldie" "Rube" 

Ford City, Pennsylvania 

Goldie is a product of Pennsylvania's 
"smoky district." Ford City is the 
name of the podunk of his nativity, and 
it was there on the banks of the 'ole Al- 
legheny that he first heard the call of 
Mistress Sea. Following close on its 
heels came the ardent ambition to become 
one of Uncle Sam's "spoiled and pamper- 
ed pets," and so it was that '32 recruited 
another member. 

Early in his career Goldie proved to be 
a savoir, and it was only the "Proverbial 
hair" that kept a star from lending en- 
chantment to the collar of his full dress 
blou. Snaking was also one of his many 
accomplishments and he gave them all a 
break. That far-famed "rogues' gallery" 
on his locker door gave ample proof of 
his success with the Navy line. 

In the realm of athletics, a "trick knee" 
proved somewhat of a handicap. You 
can't keep a good man down, though, as 
Goldie demonstrated by four years of ex- 
cellent tennis (sometimes on one leg) , 
and the coveted TNT was his. 

Again the Regiment's loss will be a 
gain to the service. A true friend and a 
real shipmate — his success is assured.

"Paulie" "Emmy" 

Butler, Pennsylvania 

From the ranks of the long-famous 
Pennsylvania Volunteers came one day 
a lanky lad to prove to the Navy that the 
good old Keystone State is still without 
parallel in producing strong men and true 
for Uncle Sammy's torturous task of con- 
quering the sea. 

Because it seemed to be his pet hobby 
to coast through academics without exert- 
ing himself, he was prevented from par- 
ticipating in athletics by the ever-evasive 
two-five. Navy never had a more ardent 
backer when it came to lung power in the 
stands, and he might easily have been an 
equally ardent participant if the sub- 
squad and math department had not been 
so cozy with their passing stamps. 

In his four years as a member of '32 
he has fitted into the cog of affairs like a 
true son of old Neptune. If he remains 
in the embrace of the Navy's alluring life, 
his success is assured, but should it be his 
intention to penetrate the vastness of the 
world as a civilian, the U. S. S. "Outside" 
will gain what we in the Service will lose 
and mourn — a true friend and comrade —

Plebe year found "the Bishop" a con-

straight and narrow. Being conservative 
his past deeds wouldn't fill volumes, but 
indeed one worthy of the costliest bind-

Most of us met Ralph during the lat-

back of it. 

As a student, there were no stars on

seldom graced by his presence. Except 
for a slight struggle with the Math. Dept., 
which cost him, along with so many of us, 
a valuable leave, his passage among the

From Thanksgiving to the middle of

head poked around the door with "Hey,

Invariably the answer would be, "Sure, 
be right with you."

always made him the center of every

From the Quaker City came Joe to ful-

Plebe year found him going along well. 
He did, however, fall just below the line

but has tempered it with a personal charm 
and excellent judgment which makes him

"Jack" "Muscles" 

Quincy, Massachusetts 

The massiveness of the "Lexington," 
then under construction near his home, 
was perhaps a decided factor in John's 
entering the Naval Academy. Soon he 
had taken his oath of "I do" in the 
Commandant's office and, his life's am- 
bition attained, he at once took his job 
seriously with excellent results. 

Although his home for the past few 
years has been in the "City of Drags," 
John's speech betrays the fact that his 
earlier years were spent in the heart of 
New England. But there is another ele- 
ment in his make-up — perhaps of Vir- 
ginia, his mother's home — for there is in 
him the dreamer, surely not born of rug- 
ged Massachusetts. 

John is quiet and reserved. At times, 
however, he bubbles over with enthusiasm 
for some event or other to which he might 
turn his attention. Inherent American 
aggressiveness and tact, coupled with 
Scottish canniness and a keen sense of 
responsibility have produced in John 
those desirable qualities necessary for a 
successful Naval career.

Hank, or Henry as some will persist in

Of course, with so much sweetness run-

he drops anchor down in old Alabama

Bill is one of the big fellows who 
hail from North Carolina and is 
proud of it. Having come from a family 
of Army people, he wanted a little variety 
and so joined the Navy. And if you'll 
dig back into the traditions of North 
Carolina's army men, you will find that 
we feel pretty lucky to have converted him 
to the sea. 

Athletics instead of dragging have 
occupied most of Bill's time, and he has 
shown his versatility by going out for 
football, crew and track. His ability 
in track has stood him in good stead in 
getting to formation on time as anyone in 
the first platoon of the Eighth Company 
can tell you. 

To call Bill an idle conversationalist 
would be blasphemy; for when he has 
something to say, it is usually worth while 
to listen. A square shooter and a good 
friend, he has every requirement for a 
good officer; and wherever he goes we 
know he will make a success. Luck to

Washington, D. C. 

WITH the eyes and the interest of the 
world turned on Washington and 
the presses of the country clamoring for 
the latest releases, Hank first opened his 
eyes there to a cold, cruel world. He didn't 
like the looks of it, and went back to 
sleep. For twenty odd years he lived under 
the delusion that all the interest on his 
birthday was directed at him, and it was 
quite a shock to learn that it was only 
a coincidence, with President Taft hold- 
ing the center of the stage. 

"Our strength is as the strength of ten 
because our hearts are pure." Struggling 
ever onward and upward, despite his own 
private Hoover boom and the adversities 
of a midshipman's life, he finds his 
little watchword as quoted above quite a 
prod to the lagging spirits of a Sunday 
evening, when the young lady of your 
choice has returned to Washington and 
the curtain of despondency has descended 
upon you. "Sunday night and sore as can 
be," has ever been a Navy proverb, but 
the other breaks through this gloom caster 
and the Department of Ordnance, Nav, 
Steam, et al., find their little tasks faith- 
fully discharged.

New York, New York 

ONE hot June day four years ago, 
Tommy, with a broad Irish smile, 
came into the yard and proceeded to make 
a thousand or so friends. Tom Hurley, 
or Pat, if you must confuse him with the 
Secretary of War, is one of the few peo- 
ple liked by the D. O.'s, the upper classes 
and the plebes. Without studying much, 
he absorbed enough to keep from worry- 
ing about the eternal 2.5. As for athletics, 
turn to the sport section. 

Tommy comes from a home only a 
few blocks away from the scene of the 
Army-Navy Salvation-bathrobe benefit in 
'30. His prep education was acquired 
in Stuyvesant High School along with let- 
ters for various sports. 

After High School, Tommy let a lit- 
tle time pass, then fell for the "call of 
the sea." The Congressman for his dis- 
trict lived next door; so it didn't take 
long for his wish to be gratified. Then 
came Plebe summer and what followed, 
Youngster year, which he divided be- 
tween the Fourth Batt and the hospital, 
second class year with lots of printer's ink, 
and finally this picture up above and four 
years finished.

"Lo" "Sonny" 

Fairmont, West Virginia 

Mountaineers often take to the sea. 
In the summer of '29 West Vir- 
ginia sent another one East to carry on the 
tradition. Well over six feet and of wiry 
build, he soon acquired the marksman's 
gold circles — the true mountaineer. 

A disposition that made many friends 
and a character founded on an instinct for 
right made Lewis the ideal classmate. 
His inspiration was usually music. Be it 
jazz or classics he would go a long way 
to hear a good orchestra. More or less 
periodically other inspirations entered his 

A more than usual ability in basketball 
and tennis left him off the Executive 
Council of the Radiator Club; on the 
other hand a natural savviness and a clear 
conscience permitted him to erase his 
deepest worries with nine or ten hours' of 
Dr. Morpheus' treatment. 

A gentlemanly reserve neutralized by 
a democratic enthusiasm brought him 
esteem. A warm heart brought him strong 
personal attachments, and together these 
qualities will bring him deserved pros- 
perity and success.

• "Gus" "Mad Anthony" 

Charleston, South Carolina 

With the Stars and Bars floating 
above the fort and the old massa at 
home from the wah, suh, the Francis 
Marion Hotel completed and the ferry to 
the Isle of Pa'ms on a business basis, 
Charleston, South Carolina, felt herself 
in a position to indulge in a few luxuries. 
From this outburst of fiendish spending 
burst Mad Anthony — Southern Gentle- 
man, dilettante, iconoclast, care-nothing- 
for-what-you-think. Successive trials at 
the Citadel, stronghold of Southern 
Militarism, and the University of Charles- 
ton, cradle of American culture, convinced 
him that he was totally unfit for the 
Naval Service. 

A casual observer, perhaps a roommate 
of four years' good standing, could not 
fail to notice that he is inclined to be a bit 
too destructive with anything breakable 
and is not to be trusted with anything that 
one values particularly — especially the 
light of one's life. Gus has always had 
a trenchant weakness for the feelings of 
the young ladies, and at times it takes the 
form of some good advice to a perfectly 
strange young lady on how she might im- 
prove her looks or her mode of attack.

"Jack" "Sophie" "Ajax" 

Moylan, Pennsylvania 

Above is one Ajax from Chester, Pa., 
or thereabouts. Boyhood days spent 
around shipyards and pulling an oar for 
his prep school crew, then a trip or two 
on seagoing tramps and a try at railroad 
building — result, another "aspirante." 
From a somewhat ambitious and serious 
youth, he has deteriorated into a swell 

Follows a cross-section of his room- 
mate's mind. Serious to a certain point, 
but blessed with a sense of humor. Do 
not disturb while reading. Journalism 
his chief passion — a line which he has 
followed until it has caused the men, who 
are, to notice him, and, it must be con- 
fessed, occasionally with disapproval. A 
crew enthusiast — at first a successful par- 
ticipant, but now consigned to the ranks 
of a spectator, too light for the heavy- 
weights and vice versa. Academically 
inclined (?) — no. "It's the last month and 
we have velvet." Religious — yes, and one 
of the few that live up to it. The ladies 
find him very pleasant. Smokes a very 
large and very obnoxious pipe. His 
crowning achievement thus far is that he 
is a guiding light among the Reprobates.

"Bob" "Robby" 

Watervliet, New York 

Picture for yourself a medium sized 
handsome young blond fellow with a 
balanced portion of that well-known New 
York self-confidence and you have a fair 
idea of our little Robert. Bob has 
spent the better part of the last few years 
trying to convince the rest of his class- 
mates of the advantages of getting duty 
in the submarines after graduation. Oh, 
yes, and don't forget the Merchant 
Marine and the Army. Bob also gives 
us all the dope on these two services. 

Along the line of athletics Bob has di- 
vided his spare moments between getting 
scratched up in class water polo and light- 
weight crew. A bit of Cat Fever during 
the spring of his second class year caused 
him a little hard work in the latter sport. 

Since Bob was born at, and brought up 
in, the Watervliet Arsenal we can hardly 
blame him for his rather warlike character 
and utter dislike of all peace treaties and 
other diplomatic conferences. It is prob- 
ably this characteristic combined with his 
early acquiring of sea-legs by playing with 
toy boats in the Hudson that gave the 
Navy such a great break.

"Hank" "Mouse" 

Okmulgee, Oklahoma 

HANK came to us from the sunny state 
of Oklahoma where the "oil flows 
and the gas blows" and the Indians drive 
Rolls-Royces. Sometimes we think that 
he may have learned a few of his tricks 
from the noble red man, as a more fun- 
loving disposition can't be found any- 
where within these walls. A war whoop 
that would make the aforementioned 
natives sit up and take notice, and a bag 
of tricks were his heritage when he came, 
and the years have only added to his in- 
ventive genius along these lines. 

As far as academics are concerned, 
Hank has never had to worry particularly. 
Perhaps he did find "Youngster year" 
math a little hard, but then that's a habit 
with every Youngster class. A natural 
bent for the more scientific subjects, such 
as "Juice," certainly more than makes 
up for any weakness in any other subject. 

Hank has always been a keen devotee 
of the more warlike pursuits. Numerals 
in small-bore, numerous activities in pis- 
tol, and a fondness for machine guns 
certainly have qualified him for brother 
Capone's right-hand man.

"Spud" "Murpb" 

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 

One bright day in June, '28, a future 
member of Uncle Sam's "Spoiled 
and Pampered Pets" was seen struggling 
through Number Two Gate. His attrac- 
tion for the sea began while navigating 
about the islands of Casco Bay in his 
youth, and was furthered by the sound 
of the big gun off Lynnhaven Roads. 

From the beginning of Plebe year the 
sound of the typewriter could be heard 
in his room, "clicking out" dope for the 
Log. The added work on Reef Points 
and editing the '32 edition also kept him 
busy. Aside from this, much of his time 
was spent in keeping his violin in tune 
for the orchestra presentations. 

One glance into his locker would con- 
vince you that Murphy is not a woman- 
hater. He always has had time enough 
to take care of the "Sugar Reports" and 
listen to the recordings of Tschaikowsky, 
Wagner, and Beethoven. 

His ability to see the happy side of 
the worst annoyances, his genial disposi- 
tion, and his amiability all help to make 
him the good shipmate and true friend 
that he is. May our paths cross often. 



"Mac" "Scotty" 

Salem, Massachusetts 

When Mac came to Crabtown he had 
the Navy pretty well figured out 
until the Academic year began. It wasn't 
entirely to his liking, and he had plenty 
to say about it, like a true salt; but he 
remained — perhaps to growl — but in 
spite of everything he remained. 

The Academics gave him a royal battle, 
but Mac never could work as hard as 
when he had to. He never let down, and 
always managed to pull himself out of 
a hole with his own bootstraps. 

When he wasn't pulling sat, you could 
always find him in the wrestling loft. If 
he was pulling sat, he could always be 
found in his room with some of the 
Boys; "Now what good is all this theo- 
retical stuff anyway?" 

He always manages to be on hand at 
the hops, solo or in harness, and never 
misses a party. A ready wit and an en- 
gaging manner makes him good company 
on any occasion, be it an all night stand 
after a football game, or a game of 

Self-reliant, straight shooting, and 
keen, Mac will do well in all that he

Stoneham, Massachusetts 

Stoneham may be a small town, but it 
certainly did itself proud when it 
turned out Mai. Every inch of his five 
feet seven is just as Yankee as his state. 
Loyal, straightforward, honorable, he has 
all the traits of the true New Englander 
with the exception that no one could call 
him in any way puritanical. No, that 
would be stretching a point. He is not 
what is known as a savoir, but perhaps 
that could be laid to the fact that books 
never held any charms for him. That 
old two point five, however, never held 
any fears for him, and the end of the 
term always found it buried with plenty 
of velvet. 

As an athlete Mai's small stature was 
no great handicap, and his sense of bal- 
ance and nerve made him a strong man 
on the gym team. 

Mai seldom drags, but he is in no 
sense a red mike, having a quiet, smooth 
way with the femmes. His good nature 
and ready smile added to his gentle sar- 
casm have endeared him to all who know 
him. He is forever griping, and yet is 
always cheerful; never the same person, 
though naturalness personified.

Brooklyn, New York 

Joe, having wandered about the globe 
since infancy, could do naught when 
the time came but follow the parental 
footsteps Navywards. The initial step 
was much easier than the following ones, 
which necessarily led through that laby- 
rinth of mysteries called the Math De- 
partment. The maze had to be retraced 
once early in the game, but from then 
on the footing was more even. In sub- 
jects not requiring a mathematical fine- 
ness, he could, and did, grapple with 
the best the first section could offer. 

Juggling with pdp. dO required too 
much of Joe's time to allow him to row, 
with the consequent blasting of a prom- 
ising career as an oarsman. 

Joe is one of the best informed' men 
of the class, a quality which was both 
an advantage and a disadvantage to many 

Joe's wit and humor, combined with 
his flair for expression, always made him 
the center of any gathering. Joe is as 
true a friend as one could want, and 
truer than most have the good fortune to 


Hammondsport, New York 

BORN among the vineyards of Northern 
New York, Hank learned to make 
his first estimate of the situation at 
Ridley College, Ontario, ostensibly safe 
from the influence of all things nautical. 
But the Finger Lakes Region had its in- 
sidious effect, fortune favored our water 
polo team, and Hank came among us to 
spend five first-string years in the Plebe 
and Varsity "suicide club." This he did 
most successfully, for he gained all- 
American ranking as early as Youngster 
year. In addition, he varied his athletics 
by playing soccer during the fall. 

He is perhaps most famous for his 
under-water prowess, but he is plentifully 
endowed with other and less spectacular 
qualities. He is an equable and amiable 
disposition with an unruffled demeanor 
that cannot hide his innate consideration, 
helpfulness, sympathy, and loyalty. Be- 
neath a deceivingly quiet exterior lurks an 
insatiable desire to go places and be up 
and doing, making him an addition to 
any party. 

A gentleman, a real friend, and the 
best of shipmates.

"Jack" "Spartacus" 

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 

We've always imagined Welshmen 
as very small, quick people with 
impossible names, but Jack is our human 
paradox. Six long feet of him convince 
us that crew is not for us. Intractable 
brown hair and hazel eyes complete the 

Jack was born and brought up in Phila- 
delphia. Penn Charter was his stamping 
ground before the lure of the uniform 
got him. We will always feel that 
Jack has gotten a great deal more 
out of this our vale of tears than most. 
He believes implicitly in his ability to 
shape his life after his own ideals, though 
he is never obtrusive about it. 

Athletics appeal to him in their ulti- 
mate importance to health. Music has 
charms to soothe him, but he seldom 
raves over it. His keenly inquisitive 
mind, coupled with his inherited con- 
scientiousness, keeps him booming long 
after we have knocked off for the day. 

Somewhere in the service we will meet 
him again and will be reminded of the 
good it has done us to know him. Always 
considerate, interested and active, we 
know his success is assured. 


"Brum-Brum" "Bill" 

Schenectady, New York 

Bill is a handsome lad from that far- 
famed producer of reliable gadgets — 
Schenectady, New York. 

He likes books and claims that some 
day he will write one. He has a way 
with the girls, too. But they are not 
always to be outdone — for it seems that 
he is falling at last. 

His chief characteristic is energy. Every 
waking moment he is doing something 
— reading, writing, swimming, dragging, 
making a racket, playing the Vic, or off 
to NA. Ten practice. He has his 
serener moments, too, which indicate that 
there is something behind all his restless- 
ness — a desire to get on in this world 
and concern for his friends. He gets by 
in his studies and that is all that worries 
him. The rest of his time is spent in 
whole-hearted indulgence in his other 

In a word, Bill is a great little guy. We 
wish him luck — and hope that the tale 
of our friendship will not end with our 
Academy days.

Seneca Falls, New York 

Adolphe has but one weakness; a 
strong one at that. He would sac- 
rifice anything from a Navy breakfast to 
an hour's study of navigation for an 
opportunity to enter an argument, and he 
could convince a host of Darwins that 
the hen jumped out of the egg. 

Unlike the nose-led and spoon-fed 
who travel in the ruts left by others, he 
created his own sphere of thought and 
proceeded as his ideas dictated. 

Like the better half of Academy men, 
he occasionally found his name on the 
short end of the monthly student versus 
professor game, but he always ended the 
season with enough drive to look back 
and smile at the nearest academic evils. 

GENTLE, MEEK, and MILD? Well, 
hardly, for he did his share of work on 
the wrestling squad, jogged through thick 
and thin with the cross country runners, 
and spent more than one Sunday playing 
lacrosse for '32. 

Adolphe was a generous friend to all 
who knew him; a pleasant classmate, and 
the sort of fellow who was welcomed in 
any company. 


"Willie" "Schmaltz" "Bucky" "Windf 
Boston, Massachusetts 

The University of Rochester lost a 
great son when Willie took to the sea. 
He was not only a great part of the ath- 
letic teams, but shone in the classroom 
as well. Gifted as he was in these re- 
spects, the fellowship and idealism of 
college attached him to the institution 
with the affection and loyalty of a true 
son. Yet, the lure of the sea was too 
great, so he entered the Naval Academy. 
With his one-hundred and sixty pounds 
of brawn packed in a stature of five and 
a half feet, a jolly disposition and "une 
air de savoir," he was at once as much 
at home in the Navy as a duck in the 
water. No academics ever disturbed his 
peace of mind. If it weren't for so many 
Cosmos to read and so many different 
kinds of solitaire to master, he could 
easily have earned the gold stars. 

In soccer and baseball Willie has 
great natural ability. In each he loomed 
as a stellar player until a too flexible knee 
curtailed his activity. Yet every fall and 
spring sees him with the old gang. And 
here, as everywhere, he receives a hearty

"Goo-Goo" "Dream Daddy" 

He's tall, he's dark, he's handsome — 
not too tall, not too dark (Heaven 
forbid), but none the less handsome. 
His talents are unlimited (to him at any 
rate) . He is equally at home on the golf 
course, dance floor, in the saddle or be- 
hind the plough. His favorite pastime 
has been chasing balls for the ham 'n' 
eggers until someone mistook Goo-Goo 
for a ball and threw him for a goal.

wouldn't like to be loved by a dark,

"Dick" "Kelly" 

Peoria, Illinois 

Dick is a regular fellow and just the 
man to have around if you need 
some encouragement or help. He is a 
most unselfish chap and will willingly 
lend a hand whenever necessary whether 
you are out of luck in academics, finances, 
or love. Never having to worry about 
academics himself, he is usually in a 
position to be a great help to one less 

Having had more experience than the 
rest of us in matters of the heart, Dick 
can usually find a solution to the most 
intricate problem. He likes athletic 
activities but has so many non-athletic 
interests that he has never been able to 
put in enough time on any one to excel 
in it. He is a good diver, enjoys swim- 
ming and likes nothing better than an 
occasional game of tennis or a friendly 
bout in the boxing ring. 

Dick is famous for his unfailing good 
humor. He laughs at trouble and the 
most appalling tragedy appears to him 
merely funny. Perhaps that explains why

• "Leon" "Kinty" 

Baltimore, Maryland 

The A course at Baltimore Poly and a 
year at Johns Hopkins seemed not 
quite to fill the bill, so late in the sum- 
mer of '28 Leon joined the ranks of the 
class of 1932. 

Standing well in his class with a 
minimum amount of boning, he always 
has time to lend a helping hand to those 
less fortunate than he. Of course, that 
doesn't include dago. Dago is the pro- 
verbial thorn in Leon's side and one noun 
does not exist for him in its relation to 

He's not quite a snake but on every 
occasion he can be seen dragging a girl 
from Crabtown. Yes sir! It is the same 
girl every time. 

Ever there with a cheerful word for 
all and a quick, deep sympathy for any 
mishap labels Leon a real bright spot in 
the sometimes drab routine — and what a 
boon at table, for he doesn't like milk or 
ice cream. 

We hope to meet him on the outside. 
Best of luck, Leon. 


"Bill" "Will" 

Rock Springs, Wyoming 

There has been altogether too much 
talk about the secret of success. Suc- 
cess has no secret. Her voice is forever 
ringing through the market place and 
crying in the wilderness, and the burden 
of her cry is — -"Will." 

"Will," or Bill as he is better known, 
has those qualities that spell success, as 
anyone who knows him will tell you. If 
his studies at college compare with his 
favorites here, he certainly did some real 
work back home. 

"Bill" is a happy combination of seri- 
ousness and pleasure. Academics are but 
a necessary evil, still he manages to keep 
with the best of them. One could run 
on like this forever, singing loud hymns 
of praise to his many virtues, but the 
regret with which we take leave of him 
is conclusive proof that he has made a 
warm place for himself in the heart of 
his roommate. 

In short, picture a pleasant, congenial 
fellow, and you will have a valuable ad- 
dition to any commercial enterprise.

Class History 

ACTIONS speak louder 
- than words and pic- 
tures never lie. On these two 
platitudes we base our story, pre- 
senting it to you with the famous 
classroom war cry, 

The Ticture Works 
The Trob. 

WINTER in Panama and Fleet Concentration. Fingers of light cutting the 
gloom from the searchlights of the gray sided men-of-war — that swing idly 
at anchor in the Roadstead. Purring motor launches, distinguishable in the murk 
only by a red or green sidelight and the phosphorus of their wakes, weaving in and 
out of the monsters who mother them. Liberty Parties and Shore Patrols and white 
linen suits. Old Panama and the Locks and visions of Morgan. And, finally, the 
Hotel International and the Miramar. 

The door swings open in the Miramar and in stroll four red-cheeked ensigns — 
the ink still wet on their commissions, the eyes still wide at the concentrated power 
of the Fleet, their amazement and wonder at their sudden rise to officer status not 
leavened even a little by eight months in J. O. Country. The place is filled with 
people whose faces they recognize as members of the higher order of stripes and as 
they stand in the doorway absorbing the smoke and the atmosphere and the gayety, 
the realization strikes them that maybe they are of the lesser fry and should be shy 
and retiring in such a gathering of superiors. 

"Back corners for us," says the taller — and apparently more practical one. "A 
nice quiet table tucked off in the gloom is just the thing for us at this point." 

"You're right, old hoss." 

"Suits me." Complete approbation all around and they seat themselves at a 
wicker table that looks across the Bay of Panama. 

"Garcon. Mozo. Vakmeister. Waiter. Somebody bring us four beers." 
Tall and cool and dark it came, and they settled themselves to the panorama that un- 
folded itself before them. The lights that outlined the locks, the ships coming in 
from the Pacific to anchor and wait for dawn, the incessant flashing of the light on 
Flamingoe Island, — it all lay before them as an unreal fairyland. 

"This is the sort of life to give the troops. As a matter of fact, I'm all for this 
Fleet business. It's a whole helluva lot different from the cruises that we made." 

"You're right, it is. All the time at the Academy, I wondered if it was any- 
thing like the life that we led there. There's something about it that sort of gets 
you. It's a different attitude, all the way around. And, men, I like it." 

"You men out of this year's class?" Some stranger in a white linen suit and 
panama hat sitting at the next table with an aperitif. And, unmistakably, the 
Academy ring. 

"Yes, sir. Fresh as paint, I guess." 

"How do you like the Fleet by this time?" With every word that he spoke, he 
hitched his chair around a little more, until, finally, he had joined the group. A 
couple of more cool ones around and they were fast friends. 

' 'We were just saying how different it was from the Academy life and how much 
we liked it." The tall one was doing the talking, but all the others were nodding 
assent. "What class were you?" 

"I'm out of Thirty-two. Ten years seems like an awful short time when you 
look back on it. And I'm still a Lieutenant. Well — " with a sort of grin-and- 
bear it look, — "I guess I can't kick much. You guys that have just come through 
don't know what good times are. They're turning out an awful lot of sissies now- 
adays. The Navy's shot to hell.

jESPITE the fact that pages and pages of 
this book have been devoted to eulogies 
of the Class of Nineteen Thirty-two, in all honestv it 
must be confessed that there are other people in the 
Naval Academy who contribute as much to the life and 
activities as do the "serious seniors." 

In these mass pictures that follow, everyone loses 
his identity and becomes mere background for the fortu- 
nate souls who got in the front ranks. But in and 
among the background, there are mixed the people that 
we have known and liked and with whom we have been 
shipmates. And there are men who are only delayed 
action classmates and whom we will be willing to wel- 
come to the fold when they, too, have completed their 
course and become eligible for fitness reports. Thev 
have all been material aids to making pleasant the three 
years that have elapsed since we became elevated to the 
somewhat doubtful honor of being a Youngster. 

We give vou 


Class of 1933 

WITH "three years behind and one to go," it doesn't seem so far back to that dim, dark, 
distant summer of 1929 when, seven hundred strong, we congregated here in Annapolis, 
from all over the country to solidify into the Class of Nineteen Thirty-three. 

Plebe Summer passed before we realized it and it was only when we had really gotten 
into Academic Year that we really understood how Plebe Summer was a fool's Paradise 
and probably the most carefree time of our entire careers. 

We became Youngsters and earned that greatest of all privileges — to drag. And we 
saw another class graduate while we became Second Class. Second Class Summer with its 
week-ends and its "cits" and its freedom was more appreciated than the Summer as a Plebe 

and enjoyed more fully. And then we settled down to learning the process of command 
from the class we were to succeed as S. O. P. Three dollars more a month, another stripe, 
our introduction to Ordnance and Nav, the "Book of the Month Club" and currents that 
would not alternate. But as we get down toward the end, we realize more fully that it is 
the best year of them all, the transition from irresponsibility to responsibility notwith- 

We've tagged along behind the Class of 1932 for three years and from them learned 
most of our lessons. But above all, we hope that the lesson we have learned the best from 
them is the sane and thoughtful handling of the Academy while "lords of all that we 

[ Three Hundred Tiventy-five ] 

Youngster Class 

W 7TTH two years of Naval Academy life to look back on, Thirty-four reaches the 
* » mid-way mark with joyful anticipation of a companion for that lone "diag" which 
seemed so elusive one year ago. Not twice the plebe year sweat which earned that narrow 
gold band seems comparable with the mental whirlwind from which we are yet recovering. 
On the verge of mental collapse, Thirty-four views with wonder the mystic crystal which 
holds the secret of Second Class summer and the two years to come. 

Looking back on its baptism by fire-hose and its teething in the hard ring of discipline, 
the Youngster Class sees a plebe year as long as youngster year seemed short. To our minds 
the two blend together over the gap of June Week and the summer cruise while memories 

{_ Three Hundred Twenty- six ] 

of that first September leave lend enchantment to the future. Two Army games, too, stand 
out as vivid towers in our memories of the past. 

So Thirty-four approaches that point in Academy life where the past and future lie 
well balanced on the scales of time. Only time will reveal the multitude of pleasantries 
and disappointments that await in the uniform with "two diags" as only time has revealed 
the quantity of fun and pain dressed in Plebe and youngster garb. Thirty-four hopes to 
fit its new raiment with the carrying on of the old spirit of the class, the regiment, and the 

Three Hundred Twenty-seven ] 


AS our one diag changes from a dream to a reality, we look back upon plebe year and 
- realize that from the heterogeneous assembly that wandered into the Administration 
Building twelve months ago we have been made into a class. 

The transition had its tribulations. For a long plebe summer we strained our backs 
to the cutter's oars, groveled in the dust of the rifle range, and learned that "Squads right" 
is something more than a quotation from a war novel. For eight Academic months we 
bore the brunt of the best, or perhaps worst, efforts of the various departments to send us 
back into the darkness whence we came. 

[ Three Hundred Twenty-eight 

There have been pleasures as well as trials. We found our Navy Spirit at the athletic 
games. Our first Christmas Leave brought us a never-to-be-forgotten thrill — that of re- 
turning to once familiar sights and friendships, and seeing them from the standpoint of our 
new environment. 

Our experiences have unified us. We have come to know the man who squares his 
corners, braces up in the mess-hall, and answers the eternal "Plebe ho!" for a friend. Our 
class spirit is born of these trials, but it will not end when they are over. Never again will 
we be merely a group of plebes, nor even of youngsters. Now and forever, we are THIRTY-

my fist into the newcomer's teeth and nearly knocked his head off. I was wonderful, wasn't I, Lydia? 
Lucky I happened along. . . . ' Thus Keene introduced himself in the first of his dual characters in 
a manner that gave the audience at once the impression that here was a role handled with remarkable 
inherent talent, the more so since this is the first year that Keene has been a member of the Masquer- 

The Act continues with the arrival of the Gendarmes (Adams and Erwin) under the command of 
the Sergeant of Police (Merrill) who have come for the purpose of taking into custody Our Hero 
for alleged assault on His Royal Highness, Prince Alexis of Moldavia. Just at the moment when 
Keene is to be dragged away to a living death at the salt mines there is a disturbance in the audience; 
a spot focuses on a sartorially correct Vellenborg (complete with high silk hat!) who appears in the 
limelight as a disinterested spectator but who later directs the destinies of the entire cast. Foote 
gave a remarkable performance in a difficult part, that of a cold-blooded, astute Chancellor whose love 
for Country and Intrigue blinded him to human affections. 

New complications occur in the Second Act when, in the Palace of Moldavia, Prince Alexis refuses 
to seek the hand of the beautiful, alluring Katerina of Wallachia, and Peter, who as his double, is

chosen to take Alexis' place that the beautiful Princess might be gained and the Treaty (of course there 
had to be a Treaty!) might be signed. 

We follow the trials and tribulations of Peter in pleading the suit of the man whose place he had 
taken, Prince Alexis, and we are charmed by the urbanity and remarkable acting of Queen Elinor of 
Moldavia; the part was taken byCotten, whose histrionic abilities were no less matched by his ability 
to wear the latest creations of Poiret and Boulanger with "chic". 

In Queen Elizabeth (acted by Sapp), and her ' 'lesser half, ' ' King Nicholas (Hoover, to his friends !), 
we see that even in Wallachia "Uneasy lies the head that wears a Crown!" The domestic storms, the 
play of humorous lightning about the King's head produced laughter at the psychological moments 
and credit is due to both Sapp and Hoover for the able manner in which they developed their char- 

But we must not forget that in every romance there must be a heroine; Erskine, in the role of 
Katerina, that young lady whose ultra-modern views had proved the stumbling-block to her previous 
suitors, and whose hand is the quest of Peter, proved to be one of those rare, adaptable persons which 
make casting of feminine leads not as great a difficulty as one might be led to imagine. 

Nor is any play complete without those all-important characters which furnish successful con- 
tinuity; in Dissette and Fell as Manservants, Kilmartin as the King's Secretary, Packard and Anderson 
as Actors in company with Roenigk as Yana, we have the remainder of the Cast which succeeded in 
putting on what has generally been admitted as one of the most colorful, spectacular, and amusing 
plays yet to grace the boards of Mahan Hall. 

In the final analysis, then, any historical sketch resolves itself very easily into the biography of 
the few earnest persons whose love of the Dramatic finds expression each fall in the auditorium of 
Mahan Hall and whose volunteer spirit results in a play worthy of those that have gone before. 

The Masqueraders of 1932 leave the Regiment with still greater triumphs to be attained; yet, we 
who leave carry away with us the feeling that in "The Command Performance" we found more 
interest and gave more varied diversion than has heretofore been attained. For those who remain, 
however, it is but the beginning, for 

' 'Achievement is but another milestone along

PASSING through the corridors in the late afternoon one always hears those six o'clock shower 
tenors or a Radiator Club quartette; and after chow there is always an audience for those twos or 
threes who get together on their mandolins. The boys all like their music, hence the Combined 
Musical Clubs' Show. 

Keeping up with the times, the show this year depicted the high lights and some of the comedy 
that takes place in a modern broadcasting studio. Tommy South, as chief announcer, proved to be 
quite a wag; we wouldn't be surprised to see him grabbed off to sub for Walter Winchell. 

' 'Good evening, everybody, Station NAMC first brings you The Collegians . ' ' With this announce- 
ment the Glee Club, directed by "Alpha" Bowser, appeared before the mike to put across some mighty 
tuneful melodies. During a pause for station announcements some of these lilting larynx artists got 
loose in pajamas; they, if not their garments were a study in close harmony. 

"Back on the air again, folks, with Enoch Knock, maestro supreme, and his symphony orchestra." 
For the first time in years the orchestra was up on the stage where it belonged. Such melody as that 
rosewood baton of Enoch's could draw out of his musicians!

took us on a journey to hear Jack Lewis' "pick and string" boys. Hearing some of those old negro 
spirituals one would think they all had had experience with the "chain gang" down in Mississippi. 
Were they ever good ! 

"Now, ladies and gentlemen of the radio audience, we are turning the microphone over to Ray 
Pitts and his famous Bancroft Hotel Smoke Hall orchestra, possibly more commonly known as the 
NA-10." Indeed that band would do credit to any genuine broadcasting studio. How the audience 
followed them through the entire program, swaying, humming, inclining forward slightly to get 
every note of the soft choruses. They could have answered encores all night. 

Between the feature acts Lambert and his Royal Trumpeters persuaded his listeners to book a 
cruise on the Wyoming. Correct time came through the courtesy of Pitts' Boilermakers; while that 
"stay at home with an El Ropo" feeling was perfectly put across by Dave Shumway on his synco- 
pated xylophones. A special added attraction of the evening was the television transmission of 
McCrosky's contortive dancing, or may be the picture was just distorted, any way it all but rolled 
the audience out of their seats with laughter. 

We admit the show was a big success and take this opportunity to thank Lieutenant-Commanders 
Glann, Ziroli, and Shelley, and all the rest of you who helped us put our show across.

THE last notes of "Taps" reverberate, echo, and die out in the spacious rotunda; one by one the 
lights of Bancroft Hall go out. It is sleeping time for everyone but those who live on the First 
Battalion Court; they are kept awake by those blood enemies of Morpheus, the Glee Club. Up from 
the Music Room in the deep, dark recesses of the basement float the harmonic strains from the throats 
of a score and a half of young vocalists practicing for the annual Spring Show. First may be heard 
a rip-roaring he-man ballad, next, a sweet negro lullaby, then maybe a popular song, one of those 
you like to hum in the shell pink ear of your O. A. O. As 10:30 rolls around the stirring strains of 
the Club's signature song "Navy Blue and Gold" float out the window, up over the roof into the 
dark night; then in a few seconds dead silence reigns. 

Certainly, they're the Glee Club you heard in April; so you remember them too. Well, join us 
then in congratulating them on their excellent performance, and don't forget their technical skill and 
smoothness were the result of patient coaching by Professor Crosley. 

Mighty fine going, fellows; here's wishing those of you who carry on many happy practices on 
the cruise, and some lively hours next year.

THE so-called Naval Academy "symphony" orchestra is one organization in the Regiment in which 
each member plays his own personal part. A successful concert is accomplished by all players 
doing their individual best; and there are so many necessary units in such a club that credit must be 
given to all hands for making possible an entertaining performance. 

In the 1932 Musical Show, the orchestra strength was cut slightly because of the nature of the 
presentation — a broadcast parody with small musical units filling the "mike." As a result, the 
directors of the four clubs, especially of the "symphony," attempted to produce the same effects with 
reduced ensembles that in previous years were accomplished with almost twice the talent. The 
trial brought great success; the orchestra not only demonstrated the classical masterpieces but also 
introduced itself as a new unit — the concert orchestra — by delving into modern music with a few 
melodies like the celebrated "Rhapsody in Blue" and one of the latest orchestrations, "Lady of Spain." 
So this versatile ensemble scored its fourth success — leaving nothing to be desired in the way of 
entertaining the Service music lovers.

THE MANDOLIN CLUB offers to the regiment an outlet for practically all stringed instrument 
talent. In spite of the name, during the last few years the club has become more and more domi- 
nated by banjos, due, no doubt to the more universal appeal and to the greater number of that in- 

In each Musical Club's Show of the past the Mandolin Club has had a vital part and has con- 
tributed no little to the success of the show. They have appeared as everything from wandering 
gypsies to darkies in a Harlem night club. And the music has varied from the near classical to the 
latest of the hot dance numbers. 

The members of this organization have always enjoyed putting on a show. There is a certain 
satisfaction and fascination in having done something well, which repays in full the long hours of 
practice. And there are other benefits, such as missing a few formations and the inevitable good 
fellowship of the dressing room. 

As the men of the Regiment realize, the Mandolin Club has been growing and improving. For 
with all the radios and victrolas the day will never come when people will not get a thrill out of 
playing, or listening to someone play, the mandolin or banjo. 

R. M. Pitts 

EVEN the extra duty squad knocks off work once in a while, but this organization, composed of a 
few lucky ones from each class, spends two or three hours a week, all year long, having a good 
time practicing new tunes, murdering old ones, and hoping they'll stay sat. 

Each Friday evening we hear, "Now the N. A. Ten has permission to leave the mess hall at will," 
and the result is the band's latest idea of a good, warm dance program. All the first class are present 
in their bald-headed row seats, yelling for "Tiger Rag," "St. Louis Blues," and similar possibilities, 
while the others stand in the smoke-filled room trying to get close enough to actually hear what's 
going on. 

Once each year the Ten is allowed to play for a First Class Hop, as much to the enjoyment of the 
dancers as to that of the would-be Lombardos, Weems, or Arnheims. And during the summer cruises 
the N. A. Ten spends many happy hours on deck, in a casemate, or in the wardroom. 

The great climax for each N. A. Ten, a yearly event, is the Spring Musical Club Show. The 
Ten is always awarded the position of honor in the show, their part of the program coming last. 
With a smart setting, and the biggest musical numbers, they draw the final curtain of an evening 
that will always be remembered.

ON board ship every lost article, be it a pocket 
knife or a sweetheart's portrait, will find its 
way to the "lucky bag", and if the loser has pa- 
tience he will eventually get it back. Similarly our 
lost memories are collected in this, our Lucky Bag. 
For four years we have lived only for the present 
and the future ; we have been too busy to 
give much thought to the very pleasant past. 
However in a few years our days shall not be 
only for studies and sleep, rather there shall be 
many peaceful evenings when memories will 
come streaming back. On such occasions we 
have only to leaf through the pages of this 
book in order to relive those happy hours 
that were only fleeting moments as we raced 
through four years of Naval Academy life.

Yes, that is what our Lucky Bag is, a memory book 
for the class of '32, and a book that will convey to 
our parents and friends what a midshipman's life is 
— its high lights, thrills, and commonplaces alike. 
How well we have succeeded is for you to decide. 
In the summer of '30 all this was but a dream 
as we sat around and talked things over with 
"Corky" Ward. On the Cruise most of it was 
tangible only in the smoke from our pipes, 
but once back from September leave waste 
baskets were filled with noble struggles to ex- 
press our pet ideas; and packs of film were 
exposed in an effort to bring to life the events of 
the past. Before we realized it, January was at 
hand, then things happened in a hurry; page 
layouts were completed, dummies made out, 
copy written, engravings cut. Finally the fin- 
ished pages were in the hands of the printer. 
Two anxious months, then the Book, our 
"brain child" for your approval!

AIRCRAFT and gun design may be a series of com- 
. promises but the publishing of a Lucky Bag al- 
most requires a corps of English diplomats. When 
the Executive Department said "Cut expenses" 
there was, of course, no argument; but when the 
Business Staff repeated the story to the Editorial 
Gang the dollar signs really flew. Ward insisted 
on having eight full color pages, Simpson said 
"OK, but then you will have to use panels in 
place of individual cuts." So the discussion 
went on, and after spending many long, hot 
nights poring over previous expense accounts, 
and bidding farewell to thoughts of expensive 
layouts, a budget was produced. That budget 
was a masterpiece of finance; not a department 
suffered, yet it left each manager and editor 
with the task of remaining exactly within his 
limits, so that all, including you, dear reader, 
might be satisfied.

M. J. Hamilton — Advertising Manager 


"Mace" Hamilton really set the pace with a smash- 
ing advertising campaign that never stopped a min- 
ute until it was way over the top. If his assistants 
felt even a nibble for a half page they never rested 
until they had sold a four color full page layout. 
While the advertising forces were at work outside, 
the circulation squadron under Joe Jaap swooped 
down on the Regiment to convince all hands that 
mother, sweetheart, and congressman should have 
a copy of the Lucky Bag. They had to have a po- 
tent line to break down that "depression resist- 

So the money came in; once in, Simpson's role be- 
came that of the cold-hearted banker reluctantly 
paying out the cash, but "Corky" never had a 
need to call him ' 'Shylock. ' ' The reason for this 
harmony among the whole staff can be traced to 
those regular eighth day meetings with Com- 
mander Greenman when Ward, Simpson, and 
Hamilton gathered together to untangle prob- 
lems and make plans suitable to all.

"Hughie, what's happened to the censored galleys?" 

"Will someone please apply themselves to the highly-appreciated task of thinking up a caption

Yes, gentle reader (if any,) you have guessed it: the above is an intimate revelation about what 
goes on in the Log office on any Wednesday afternoon. For the first hour everything is bedlam. 
Gradually, however, the dissenters and fault finders wander out, leaving a half dozen frenzied souls to 
struggle with the dummy until 5:30. The editorial staff always quit at that time because the plaintive 
notes of sick call unconsciously struck a responsive chord within them. You, as the great mass of 
unprotected subscribers, didn't have to read the product of our drudgery unless you cared to; but we 
not only had to read it, we had to write it — so cheer up! 

The Log had a fairly successful year from the standpoint of those who were responsible for it. 
The prime requisite of any publication is, of course, stable finances. Thanks to the substantial adver-

rising bequeathed to us by our predecessors, plus the untiring efforts of our business and circulation 
staffs, we managed to pull through the year without showing any red marks on the ledger. The 
literary gang, usually at odds with the business department, was able to smile contentedly throughout 
the year because of the happy discovery of former Lucky Bag color plates which proved most suitable 
for covers. The general satisfaction shown by the Regiment upon the appearance of these covers lent 
great encouragement to the editors. There is undoubtedly much more material such as this stored 
away, awaiting the probing eye of some enterprising midshipman Sherlock Holmes to bring it to light. 
When the year first began the editors were hopeful that they could transform the Log into a more 
literary type of magazine than it had been in the past. But this effort did not meet with much success 
— mainly because of the rebirth of the Trident, our toneful contemporary. Other additions were 
made, however, which proved quite popular, notably: The Hall of Fame, by means of which we 
endeavored to do justice to our outstanding athletic heroes; the reestablishment of the West Point 
Letter, the good natured parodies of "Familiar Figures About the Campus," and the occasional pub- 
lishing of anecdotes apropos the naval service. As usual the femmes responded nobly to our requests 
for material. Somehow the girls have always stuck by us, even though we may have tramped on their 
literary brain children and artistic efforts with a ruthless ferocity.

Cut Exchange 


Many were the letters received from the great outside asking us why such and such a contribution 
had never appeared in print, or what was the point of this or that cover? To the first of these queries 
we can only reply that everything really good has been saved and, though this generation, or even 
the next, may not see it, your grandchildren probably will. Great and ponderous (as well as dusty) 
are the archives of the Log office, and what goes into them let no man put asunder. To the one about 
some of our covers we can only reply — you try to get a good cover for a magazine each week for a 
year and see how far you get. True, we always had a good supply of color work on hand (why there 
was one potential cover up in my room for four months which made mates of the deck gasp, E). O.'s 
swoon, and Plebes forget to sound off) — but such things cost money, and we had to keep ourselves 
financially "sat" or Foley and Franklin would have gone without their graduation outfits. 

We listened to your complaints and endeavored to improve, realizing that an issue was not suc- 
cessful unless the first class took it down to chow on Friday evenings. But whether you liked the Log 
or not, we really got a lot of enjoyment out of publishing it, and it is our sincere wish that the years 
to come will see it steadily improving and occupying a significant niche in the hearts of Navy men.

The Trident Society 

ABOUT ten years ago a group of LOG, LUCKY BAG, and REEF POINTS staff members decided 
- that there should be some outlet within the Regiment for the literary efforts of our budding 
authors, something different from any of the publications then existent. These people formed The 
Trident Society. A magazine named the TRIDENT was born and flourished well — for a short while. 
Somehow the society began fostering other ideas to the detriment of the periodical. These new 
things were good. Everyone knows THE BOOK OF NAVY SONGS; most of you have heard of 
ANCHORS AWEIGH: and the upper classes remember the NAVY DESK CALENDAR. 

This year the society felt that its true mission lay in the continuance of the magazine. Every ef- 
fort was bent to that end. This year saw reborn the old TRIDENT, yet somehow a new TRIDENT. 
Following the modern trend, color found its place in the editorial pages. On the day of its issue the 
new book took its place among the best literary quarterlies in the East. Distinctly, '32's TRIDENT 
was a success. 

However, the society must not rest. It must press on to greater success, to higher levels of attain- 
ment. It must produce each year a finer record. The history of our Service must be written by Navy 
men. Let the Trident Society lay the keels for those future books.

ORIGINALLY published as the official organ of the Naval Academy Christian Association, the 
Reef Points has since become an individual activity in the Regiment. The success attending 
the venture has thoroughly justified this step, and the publication now occupies a leading role in the 
life of JoeGish. 

The Reef Points is the official compendium of information concerning the Naval Academy and 
the Service. In it the newly fledged Plebe finds the story of the Naval Academy itself; a description 
of the sports and the activities in which he is expected to participate; and as many of the unwritten 
laws of the Navy as he can absorb and understand through reading alone. From it he must glean 
his first ideas of Naval Tradition. Finally, all hands use the book for keeping a record of the pain- 
fully acquired horde of academic "velvet." 

The 1931-1932 edition was an outstanding success, both editorially and financially. The staff 
worked hard to broaden the range of usefulness of the book, particularly for the Plebes. They suc- 
ceeded in arousing the interest of the Academy and the authorities in its importance, and with this 
foundation, Reef Points should enjoy a successful and prosperous future.

Stage Gang 


Stage Director 

HAVE you ever been back stage? Perhaps not, but you'll admit having a yearning to investigate 
those mysterious regions ever since your first stage show, won't you? 

Then meet the Stage Gang. We are just a bunch in whom that yearning grew so strong that we 
couldn't resist the admirable opportunity the Masqueraders offer to satisfy our yen. Through the 
long winter months we gather daily to do our bit, so that when show time rolls around we can present 
a smooth-working crew in the professional manner. 

Such are the labors. The joys are not to be measured in the concrete — even though we do get 
our masked "N's;" rather, they are such things as the pleasures derived from the good fellowship 
developed in many a "Joe Fight," the realization of work well done for a cause which holds our 
interest, and finally the thrill that a first night always produces when we hear the whispered cry, 
"Ready Props? Ready Juice? Ready Stage? Standby .... UP CURTAIN!"

DO you remember the red to amber to blue lighting effects at the Ring Dance last year; the light 
that revealed Tecumseh in war paint when we left for the Army game; and those acrobatic electric 
signs on Mahan Hall that reminded you of a first night performance on Broadway? 

All credit for these and innumerable other feats with A. C. goes to the Juice Gang, those savvy 
satellites of Prof. Howard. Day in and day out these fellows are over in their work shop armed with 
rubber-taped pliers, blowing fuses, circuit-breakers and lights. No, not with the idea of just fooling 
around, rather in developing new signs and preparing novel lighting effects for the stage. 

At each performance of the Navy Relief Show, the Masquer aders, and the Musical Club Show 
these men can be found either at the switchboard back stage or in the coop in the back of the Audi- 
torium, manning the spotlights. It was the hearty co-operation of this group that helped to make 
the performances this year a success.

The Business and Property Gangs 

ENTLEMEN: In reply to your letter of the 15th, we are enclosing etc." Thus may you 

always recognize the atmosphere created by the Business Gang of the Masqueraders and Musical 
Clubs. Beginning in January the offices of the Business and Advertising Managers present scenes of 
frantic and desperate activity concerning contracts, bids, subscriptions, costumes, scenery, programs, 
tickets and all other cares encountered by any organization. And out of the confusion comes order — 
an attractive program and another production successfully financed. From this the Gang derives 
its pleasing satisfaction. 

Over in the "Prop" room of Mahan Hall, just before the curtain rises, you might hear some- 
thing like this, "Who saw Charlie's bottle? Doesn't anybody know where anything is around here?" 
Then you would know that the Property Gang was having its trying troubles. Nevertheless, every 

article, from the King's costume to 's newspaper, is ready to go on the stage at the right instant. 

Little as the average spectator realizes it, the success of the production hinges fully as much on these 
small details as on the actions of the leading character.

The Amateur Radio Club 

ONE of the more romantic activities at the Naval Academy is the Amateur Radio Club. During 
the connection of 1932 with the club, two way communication has been held with several South 
American countries, Hawaii, Canada, Panama, and Santo Domingo. Reports have been received 
that signals transmitted by station W3ADO, the Naval Academy Radio Club, have been heard in 
Spain, France, Germany, Soviet Russia, Austria, and Africa. 

Aside from the thrill of communication with far-off lands, the club has done useful work, too. 
Many messages have been handled . . . informal notes sent by or addressed to midshipmen. 

In the "shack," Room 1109, may be found a maze of intricate apparatus, whose complications 
and functions are intelligible only to the initiated. To the end that more may understand the opera- 
tion of our three short-wave transmitters and necessary receivers, missionary educational work in 
amateur radio is a part of the club's program each year. That it has borne fruit is shown by the 
steadily increasing membership. All of us who have been "brass-pounders" for W3ADO are sorry 
to sever connections with it; and we hope to "work" it over the ether some day.

NEPTUNE supporting the world — that is the central figure of our crest. The Crest Committee 
felt like so many Neptunites that evening three years ago when the sack was placed in their 
hands for them to investigate and select a crest that would symbolize the class of '32 down through 
history. It was the class's first official act and had to be well done. Ideas came; jewelers had splen- 
did artists; in two months "32" was casting ballots in favor of the design that now shares with the 
Academy crest the honor position on our rings. 

June Week came and September leave — tiny pins of gold shifted from natty black neckties to 
dainty blouses. Never before did King Neptune win so many favors. He appeared on belt buckles, 
stationery, watch fobs — announcing to the world at large that the class of '32 was ready to render 
service and loyalty to the country. 

Let all who wear the crest remember that, and may many class pins become joint property.

THE RING. It probably means more to us than any other concrete thing in our lives. It is a 
thing of beauty worthy of all the admiration given to it by us and by the friends to whom we 
proudly show it. But its significance to us comes not so much from its intrinsic beauty as from the 
things it symbolizes: the bonds that tie our class together, the traditions of the Academy, the honor 
of the Service, the goal achieved by each one of us. Years may come and go, and its surface may be 
worn smooth, but time can only enhance our esteem for our Ring. 

At the end of second class summer we elected our Ring Committee, one member from each com- 
pany and one member at large. All second class year they worked, considering all the designs sug- 
gested and coordinating the best features into one which would adhere to tradition and yet be dis- 
tinctive of our class. Then the contract had to be concluded, and fingers had to be measured. Fin- 
ally, when second class June Week rolled around, it was ours, to keep and to wear forever.

A REGIMENTAL HOP — the June Ball — what pictures of courtly splendor such affairs conjure 
in the minds of all those who come to Annapolis, be they uninitiated Plebes or fair damsels arriving 
for a week-end. To the Hop Committee falls the pleasant task of seeing that these functions main- 
tain their reputation for social and military finesse. 

By their sword belts you shall know these men, courteous, ever ready to help a fair guest in her 
difficulties; be it to find a lost drag, to meet a chaperon, or announce the loss of a rhinestone buckle. 
They can always be found on the dance floor, keeping back the stag line, introducing members of the 
visiting teams, and tending to those hundred and one minor details that make the evening run smooth- 
ly. Oh, yes, little girl, they find time to dance too. 

But being a member of the Hop Committee brings not only the privilege of wearing the sword 
belt, but also the honor and pleasure of assisting the hostess in receiving our guests. Could there be 
any rarer treat than meeting all the drags present, and appearing, in their eyes, the beau of the ball? 


Ring Dance 


H. E. Shelton 

A N elfin grot by multi-colored lights made bright — silver strains from the harp of Orpheus produced 
-^ *- — a magic ring with faery queen endowed — awaiting warrior by magic ring and faery queen en- 
thralled. They pause, the lady fair and warrior proud. She breathes a sigh and drops her glance. 
He watches and waits as gently she clasps his hand and slowly places thereon a replica of the magic 
ring in which they stand. And then a knight of the golden circlet made, he takes his lady fair and 
wafts her away with knightly grace, in cadence slow, as softly fall the silver strains beneath a canopy 
of gold and blue. 

Indeed, the Ring Dance Committee, formed several months before, had, by dint of much toil 
and splendid endeavor, made the occasion a memorable one. The giant ring, the colored lights, the 
streamers of blue and gold were all the results of their tireless efforts. So it is to them we express our 
heartfelt appreciation for the dance of dances, the Ring Dance of June, 1931. 

Christmas Card 


W. L. Tagg 

A MERRY CHRISTMAS and a Happy New Year;" with that, we merely jot down an address 
on one of the Regiment's Christmas Cards and call ourYuletide duty finished; but few of us 
stop to realize all there is behind that Christmas Card, the vast amount of time and labor spent in 
its preparation. There is considerably more than dashing out to the printers a few weeks before 
Christmas and ordering several thousand cards. On the contrary, we have hardly returned from 
Christmas leave and settled down to the routine life again, when the Committee commences to func- 
tion. Many long hours are spent during valued week-ends by members, in interviewing representa- 
tives of various reputable concerns desiring to compete for the contract. Work goes on until gradua- 
tion draws near, and the contract is awarded to the best company. The summer sees the printing of 
proofs of the card and it is a proud group of midshipmen on the Committee who return to U. S. shores 
from the cruise and view the finished product. But even then, there are numerous changes to be 
made and time goes far into October before the finished card, tissue, envelope, and all, is finally ac- 
cepted. One month for printing of some thirty thousand copies and it is presented to the Regiment 
on Thanksgiving. "Do they like it?" Well, I'm afraid the answer is altogether up to you and 
them. We know we are proud of it. 


Class Supper 


.... . . 



BACK in September, 1928, we had our first meal all together — we were alone in the mess hall. There 
were many squabbles over milk and extra desserts. Now it is May, 1932, and we are sitting 
down to our last meal in a body. Captain Schumann and Lieutenant Thompson worked loyally 
with the committee in providing this well laden table. Tonight there is no need for fights for food. 

It is a totally different picture from the scene of six hundred boys dressed in wrinkled white works. 
Three years in the Academy have made us men, wearing the blue uniform which in a month will 
trade its collar anchors for one broad stripe and a star. Even the decorations reveal the situation; 
the flags of all nations surround the banquet tables, silent reminders that soon we shall be scattered 
to the corners of the world. 

In spite of such sober thoughts it is a gay night; all formality is banned. One group is singing 
with the band; at another table they have remembered a practical joke on Burt Davis and are re- 
peating it. 

How quickly the evening has passed; already we are all congratulating the committee on their 
good work as we leave the mess hall, talking of a reunion later on.

The Reception Committee 

ACTING upon the axiom that first impressions are always the most lasting ones, the Reception 
. Committee lends all its efforts toward the hospitable entertainment of all the visiting athletes. 
The favorable or unfavorable opinions which these men form of the Regiment are the basis of its 
reputation throughout the colleges of the country. It is up to the members of this Committee to 
make this reputation the best possible. 

The work consists mainly of meeting the teams, escorting them to their rooms and meals, and 
showing them around the yard. It is profitable and entertaining, too, because of the number of 
acquaintances that are made with men from other schools. 

The Reception Committee is one of the most important of the non-athletic activities that are 
associated with athletics. It acts to promote sportsmanship and good feeling between the Naval 
Academy and the civilian colleges of the country, and endeavors by its position as official host to 
perform its duties in such a manner as to bring credit not only to the Academy but to the service as a 

Chaplain Lash 

HOW do the midshipmen keep track of what is happening out in the Fleet, or in the world beyond 
the Yard?" The Naval Academy Christian Association answers this question. Each day cur- 
rent newspapers and periodicals are distributed in Smoke Hall and at the Hospital. Then each Sun- 
day evening in Memorial Hall speakers are introduced to the Regiment; these men bring news of 
the situation in Russia or Japan, tell stories of adventure and life on the '"ole devil sea," or mingle 
lively wit with current events, to send us to our rooms in a good humor, ready to begin another week. 

IMPRESSIVE is a word that characterizes our chapel services. Not a little of the military aspect 
and dignity of these services are provided by the smart surety and courtesy with which the people 
are conducted to their seats by these, our Chapel Ushers.

IT is Palm Sunday — through the stately portals and stained glass windows of the Chapel float the 
beautiful strains of "The Crucifixion" filling the air with celestial music. First soft tenor notes 
fall, then the volume swells as the basses join in. Every week for months the choir has worked 
under the excellent leadership of Professor Crosley, in order that this most beautiful cantata might 
be rendered for the edification of those who attend our Chapel services. 

There are many things out of the ordinary to impress the visitor to the Naval Academy, but there 
is no picture quite so impressive and indicative of the character of our training as the sight of the 
Regiment standing with bowed heads while our own choir sings a hymn of praise to our Father.

THE friendships made at the training tables, the "bull" sessions in the back of buses or in Pullmans, 
the thrilling contacts on the field or in the gym — these bind us in a fraternity all our own. Jonas 
Ingram remembered this spirit of his Academy days and organized the "N" Club for the purpose of 
binding together those who learned sportsmanship, courage, and comradeship in the school of Navy 

All who leave us wearing the golden "N" are its life members. They are bound to return; and 
in the years to come the Club's rooms in Hubbard Hall shall be hallowed with memories. Even the 
plaques, pictures, and trophies will come to life as three or four old "N" men gather in a corner to 
review the days when they wore the Navy Blue and Gold.

The Cheer Leaders 

HERE are the All-Americans, four caper-cutting, white clad cheer leaders, two brave goat-keepers 
(one red), and "Bill" with his family. Last fall they were on hand every Saturday to lend color 
to the gridiron and to bring forth the thunderous volume that lay in two thousand throats. 

"Dusty Rhoads" and "Jack Lamade" never tired exchanging repartee with the two front rows 
nor ceased to exhort the boys in the stands to "get hot." "Herbie and Harvie," the vaudeville troupe, 
went all season without a tumble, each back flip was better than the one before. Did you ever count 
all the cameramen around them? 

We've often wondered whether it really was "Bill" who attracted all the femmes; some think 
it must have been "Wally" Coleman and "Red" Quirk. Even the goat guessed this, and to win back 
some attention he appeared at the end of the season with two kids. 

The cheer leaders were truly the throttlemen who cut the "old sixty" into the turbines. They 
helped us show the big blue team that we were behind them on every play. Let's go! "4-N, Cheer 
Leaders ! ' '

The Pep Committee 

SOMEONE once described the Pep Committee as being composed solely of people who were willing 
to work at odd hours and do odd jobs toward helping out the football team. It covered getting 
out dope sheets, running rallies, and preparing a Pep Log for the last football game. In general, 
working for the common good and closer co-ordination of the Regiment and the Football team. 

Last year the colored card stunts were introduced as a mid-game attraction, and the job was 
turned over to this year's gang. They really carried out the idea to the fullest extent and prepared 
a series of stunts that took the people out of their seats at every game away. Little is known of the 
work that went on before the games, filling out instruction cards for days before, only to find at the 
stadium that the arrangement would have to be revised. Such were some of the breaks, but the 
Committee was partially rewarded for its efforts when the Regiment was again awarded the title of 
"The All- American Cheering Section."

Huntley Aboard 
the Oregon... 

WHILE making her 
famous run around 
the Horn, the Oregon developed a 
serious steam leak in one boiler. 
Catastrophe was imminent. Boil- 
ermaker Huntley, bravely volun- 
teering to risk his life, crawled over 
banked fires into the inferno of gas 
and heat to repair the damage. 
After three long minutes he was 
dragged out fainting and nearly 
unconscious — but successful. 







NO other part of the daily life at the Academy involves the Spirit 
of the Volunteer so much as does Athletics. Over the field of 
sport and in Macdonough Hall this spirit hovers, ever inspiring those 
who strive. 

As we follow the story of the year in Navy Athletics we find 
that there have been ups and downs. But the record, viewed as a 
whole, is an enviable one — one that cannot be equaled by any other 
institution in the world. It is one that could never be achieved but 
for the ever-present, impelling influence of the Spirit of the Volunteer.

NAVY'S 1931 Football Season was one of transition. A new coaching staff took charge, and 
their task, which was no light one, was to perfect the Navy squad in the intricacies of the 
Rockne system of play. Although Rip Miller, the new head coach, had served several seasons as 
line coach under Bill Ingram using the Warner system, he resolved to make no compromise in the 
change, and set out to establish the new system in its entirety. He was seconded by a staff well 
qualified to assist him in this. Christy Flanagan was appointed backfield coach, and Johnny 
O'Brien came later as backfield coach. Both were former stars at Notre Dame. Ensign "Plug" 
Hughes, former star Navy center, returned, for his second year, as line coach. 

In the spring, several weeks of practice were held and a large number of men turned out. 
There was much enthusiasm, and the new coach and his system won the confidence of the players. 

When the squad returned from leave in September, the real work began. There was much 
to do before the opening tilt, which marked the beginning of an eleven game schedule, one of the 
hardest ever played by a Navy team. The results of the season, although not all that might have

been desired, were highly successful in view of the difficulties of getting adjusted to the new 
system. In line of statistics, the Navy team played before more than 326,000 spectators during 
the season. The Army game, the second to be played with Army for the benefit of charity, earned 
for that cause over $300,000. 

Captain Tuttle, at center, was probably the most outstanding player on the team. His per- 
sistence in breaking through and nailing a runner behind the scrimmage line made him a terror 
to all opponents. Harbold ably filled this position as a substitute. Underwood, Reedy, Thomp- 
son, and McCrea handled the guard assignments. Bryan and James were the outstanding tackles, 
and Kane showed up well. Elliot and Smith did good work at the end positions, with Born and 
Pray frequently receiving the call and Murray developing nicely toward the end of the season. 
Many players saw service in the backfield during the season. Moncure, Denny, Davis, and Becht 
took turns at quarterback. Kirn and Tschirgi were the stellar halfbacks, but Konrad, Samuels, 
Chung Hoon, and Waybright all did good work. Campbell and Hurley handled the fullback 
assignment capably.

WE started the season off by downing William and Mary 13 to 6. The day 
was hot, and the game therefore a bit slow, but as Navy's first attempt to 
use the new system in a game, it was quite satisfactory. Tschirgi, Konrad, and 
Campbell did most of the ball-carrying, the former two accounting for the scores. 

The second team started, and they succeeded in keeping the opponents 
from the Navy goal, although most of the first period was played in Navy terri- 
tory. The first team took the field early in the second period, and after a punt- 
ing duel, Tschirgi tossed the ball from midfield to Konrad, who galloped across 
for the first score. The try for point failed. 

The opening of the second half provided a thrill. Campbell received the 
kickoff and ran it back 65 yards to the Indian 25 yard line. On the next play, 
Tschirgi tore through tackle for another touchdown. Konrad kicked the extra 
point. During the remainder of the period the play seesawed back and forth 
near the center of the field. In the fourth quarter William and Mary resorted 
to a concentrated passing attack. Completing four passes in eight attempts, 
they advanced the ball seventy yards for a first down on the two-yard line. 
On the fourth try, Chalko put the ball across for the visitors' only score. Then 
Navy began to substitute freely. There was no more scoring, but as the game 
ended, the second stringers were sweeping through the Indian line for long gains. 



[Three Hundred Ninety ] 


FOR the second game, we went over to Washington on the hot afternoon of 
October 10th, and met Maryland in Griffith Stadium. We had really expected 
to beat the Terps in spite of their weight advantage, but although the statistics 
chart gave us perhaps a slight edge, we were unable to cross the goal, while the 
opponents scored once on a long pass that came in the third period. 

The first half provided several thrills. The first was Maryland's opening 
drive which penetrated to Navy's 25-yard line. Here, however, Navy stiffened 
up and took the ball on downs. Then Tschirgi took the ball and twisted through 
for a 23-yard gain before being tackled by Woods, who was a bulwark of Mary- 
land's defense throughout the game. Tschirgi fumbled on being tackled, but 
Campbell recovered. A minute later, Campbell intercepted a pass and Navy 
drove to the 12-yard line, but could get no further. 

Just after the opening of the second half, Maryland recovered a Navy fumble 
in midfield and executed a triple pass, Chalmers tossing the ball 30 yards to 
Pease, who ran the remaining 20 yards to the goal unmolested for the lone score 
of the game. In the fourth period, Elliot blocked another kick, and Navy drove 
to the 10-yard line, Chung Hoon tossing passes to Samuels and Smith. Navy 
lost the ball on downs, and Maryland's punt went out on the 20-yard line. 
Maryland again took the ball on downs, however, and Navy's chance to score 
was lost. The game ended with the score: Navy, 0; Maryland, 6. 



[ Three Hundred Ninety-one ] 



ALTHOUGH scheduled as a breather, the Delaware game turned out to be a 
thriller. Navy scored in the first quarter, but in the last Delaware jumped 
to a 7 to 6 lead. And then we had the satisfaction of seeing a first string back- 
field take the field with the definite assignment of making a score, and do that 

The second team started and remained in for most of the first half, keeping 
the ball in Navy's possession most of the time. The first score came after a 
Navy drive in which Chung Hoon and Hurley carried the ball to the 15-yard 
line. Here the Delaware defense tightened, but Moncure tossed a beautiful 
pass to Samuels, who was standing on the goal line. Then a long punting battle 
ensued, Kane getting off some nice boots. 

As the second half opened, Delaware took the offensive, and gained con- 
siderable ground on aerial work. Green tossed one pass from the 40-yard line 
to Kemps ke, who romped to the goal from the 10-yard line and tied the score. 
Lane kicked the extra point to give Delaware a lead. With eleven minutes to 
go, Campbell, Konrad, Tschirgi, and Denny went into the game. Their first 
drive was stopped, and punts were exchanged. Then Campbell and Tschirgi 
tore through for long gains, and Konrad dove over right tackle for the touch- 
down which cinched the game. Score: Navy, 12; Delaware, 7-

ON October 24, we journeyed to Princeton, and in Palmer Stadium on the 
stately Nassau campus won a hard fight from a brave foe. 

The first quarter was scoreless. Navy started poorly, and Princeton flashed 
a strong offensive. However, Konrad's punts, many of which soared over 70 
yards, kept them out of striking distance. Early in the second quarter, Tschirgi 
and Campbell made two first downs. Then when rushing failed to gain, Under- 
wood was called back to try a dropkick from the 35-yard line. He put it neatly 
over the bar, as Whitey Lloyd had done three years before against this same 
opponent. That started us. Bryan recovered the fumbled kickoff, and Konrad 
ran wide around left end for a touchdown. 

Opening the second half, Navy made a long drive, Campbell, Konrad, and 
Tschirgi carrying the ball. After two first downs, Princeton took the ball and 
advanced to the Navy 35-yard line, but were stopped here when James recovered 
a fumble. Then Kirn entered the game, and hurled a pass to Konrad to put the 
ball on the Princeton 26-yard line. The fourth period started with a bang, 
Samuels romping around left end for 20 yards. Shortly after, Kirn intercepted 
a pass. After first down, Smith caught a pass and fought to the 9-yard line. 
Samuels put the ball on the 1-yard line, and Denny dived over center for a score, 
which made it Navy 15, Princeton 0.

ABIT overconfident after our success of the previous week, we were unpre- 
pared for the determined defensive battle put up by West Virginia Wesleyan. 
Navy showed greater offensive power, but were ineffective within the 10-yard 
line, and the result was a scoreless deadlock. 

Navy's second team began. Wesleyan made a first down, but were forced 
to kick. Navy then made a march of four first downs, Chung Hoon and Hurlev 
making some pretty runs. But bucks and passes failed, and the Bobcats booted 
to Becht, who was downed all but over his goal line. Navy made a second 
long march before the quarter ended. The second period began deep in Wesleyan 
territory, but twice they held for downs. 

Beginning the second half, Konrad and Campbell carried the ball for a first 
down, but Wesleyan recovered a fumble and kicked. Konrad and Kirn made a 
first down, and Campbell plunged 10 yards for another. Kirn got off a quick 
kick as the quarter ended. Wesleyan kicked, and Navy made two first downs. 
Konrad's long punt was downed by Elliot on the enemy 7-yard line. Denny 
ran the Bobcat punt back 15 yards. Navy fumbled, but Kirn recovered by inter- 
cepting a pass. A little later, Tuttle recovered a fumble, and Denny passed to 
Kirn for a first down on the 13-yard line, but the Bobcats held for downs. The 
game ended shortly after. Score: Navy, 0; Wesleyan, 0. 



[ Three Hundred Ninety-four ] 


ON the rainy Saturday following, the team journeyed to Columbus to play 
Ohio State in the homecoming game, before 60,000 spectators. Navy out- 
gained their opponents, scored more first downs, passed them dizzy, and acted 
very little as though they were losing a game, but Ohio took advantage of every 
break and won. Kirn was the big gun of the Navy attack, fast in carrying the 
ball and accurate in passing. 

During the first period, Navy's punting was poor and most of the play was 
deep in their territory. State failed to organize their offensive, however. A 
short Navy punt early in the second quarter was fatal. State made a first down 
and passed for a score. Then, as Konrad's kick was blocked, a Buckeye scooped 
it up to run 25 yards for Ohio's second score. The balance of the first half was 
played in Ohio's territory. 

In the third quarter, Navy threw a pass deep in their own territory which 
was intercepted by a Buckeye who crossed the goal for Ohio's final score. Navy 
threatened three times during the period. Kirn's two passes, one to Tschirgi 
and one to Smith, put the ball on the 18-yard line, but his next heave was inter- 
cepted, as was another a bit later. Davis tried one drop kick, but it fell short. 
In the fourth quarter, Navy again took to the air, and once penetrated to the 
Buckeye 15-yard mark, but the Ohio line held here and Navy never threatened 
thereafter. As the game ended, the score stood: Ohio State, 20; Navy, 0. 



[ Three Hundred Ninety-jive ] 



IN Baltimore Stadium, packed to capacity, the somewhat crippled Navy team 
engaged the powerful football machine of Notre Dame, which had already 
trampled roughshod over some of the strongest teams in the country. Navy 
lost, but in holding the Irish scoreless throughout three periods they rose to such 
defensive heights that after the game the feeling we had was one of pride. 

As the game started, Notre Dame received and made two first downs, but 
Navy stiffened in time. At a strategical moment, Davis called a quick kick 
which took the Irish completely by surprise and was downed behind their own 
goal line. Early in the second quarter, Schwartz, behind perfect interference, ran 
16 yards for a touchdown, Jaskwich kicking the extra point. Receiving the 
kickoff, the Irish made another march for their second touchdown, but Brooks 
blocked the attempted placement. Navy received the next kickoff and made 
first down, but Notre Dame took the ball and a long pass brought them their 
third and last touchdown. 

In the third quarter, Notre Dame would drive for one or two first downs, 
only to be stopped as they approached the goal line. In the final quarter, three 
scoring threats were broken up when Davis and Harbold intercepted passes and 
Underwood recovered a Notre Dame fumble. The period was played almost 
entirely in Navy territory, but the Blue refused to let the Irish pass the broad 
.stripe for another score.

THE Southern Methodist game, played in Thompson Stadium before a crowd 
much smaller than had been expected, was a thrilling one but a heartbreaking 
one. The opponents were as yet undefeated, and had beaten us decisively the 
year before, but after we had led them in the first quarter and swamped their 
running attack throughout the game, the defeat which came as a result of two 
long corner passes was hard to take. 

S. M. U. ran Navy's first punt back 55 yards, but fumbled, Tuttle recovering. 
After an exchange of kicks, the Mustangs fumbled again, and Murray recovered 
on the 17-yard line. On the next play Davis caught a pass in the corner and 
stumbled over to give Navy six points. Early in the second quarter, Travis of 
S. M. U. threw a pass to Mason, who romped over the goal to tie the score. A 
short Navy punt gave the ball to the Mustangs on the Navy 30-yard line. Fail- 
ing to gain through the line, they worked the same pass combination for another 
score, and added the extra point. 

During the scoreless second half, the battle waged even more fiercely than 
in the first. Another Mustang pass put the ball on the Navy 4-yard line, but 
Navy made a valiant four down stand to avert another score. In the final period, 
Navy hurled passes and made substantial gains through the weakening Mustang 
line, once penetrating to the 10-yard line, but passes were intercepted at critical 
moments, and in the gathering dusk the game ended. 




[ Three Hundred Ninety-seven } 



THE last home game of the season was played against Wooster, on a wet and 
sloppy field. Navy's victory was quite decisive, but the Ohioans put up a 
noble fight. 

Navy started slowly, but toward the end of the first period, Campbell and 
Kirn were making consistent gains which put the ball in Wooster territory for 
the first time. The drive continued into the second quarter, but a determined 
Wooster line and an incomplete pass prevented a score. After an exchange of 
punts, however, Kirn, Konrad, and Tschirgi carried the ball to the 23-yard line, 
from where Tschirgi, behind the goal, caught a pass for Navy's first score. 

Early in the second half, Chung Hoon, Waybright, Denny, and Becht took 
over the backfield assignment, and they went like wildfire. The first march 
ended when Chung Hoon went 12 yards around right end for Navy's second 
score. Costly fumbles and penalties kept the ball in midfield from then 
into the final period, when Samuels wriggled down the sideline through a maze 
of would-be tacklers for Navy's final touchdown. This time the point was 
converted. Waybright made a 75-yard run to the goal which, unfortunately, 
didn't count, and a Navy kick was blocked, which gave Wooster the ball on 
the Navy 1-yard line. Navy wouldn't give an inch in three downs, but on the 
last Wooster bored through for their only touchdown. Final score: Navy, 19; 
Wooster, 6. 

[ Three Hundred Ninety-eight J 




THE sixth of December brought the most thrilling game of the season so far. 
Weather conditions at Franklin Field were ideal, and 60,000 people saw Navy 
execute a 51-yard pass play to defeat the favored Quakers. It was the only 
pass which Navy completed, but it brought the touchdown that spelled a Navy 
victory, the fifth out of six games played by Navy on Franklin Field in four years. 

Navy had a slight edge in all departments of the game except punting, 
according to statistics. However, during the first three periods the play was 
mostly in Navy territory. Five times the Penn eleven had first down within 
the Navy 35-yard line, but on these occasions the Navy defense was impregnable. 
The defensive work of Captain Tuttle and of Murray was outstanding. 

Shortly after the start of the second quarter, Tschirgi picked up a Penn 
fumble in midfield before it had touched the ground and raced to the goal. But 
the referee had blown his whistle, and the score was not allowed. However, 
that didn't worry Tut and his team. 

With seven minutes of the game remaining, and the ball in Navy's possession 
on their own 49-yard line, third down, Lou Kirn dropped back and passed far 
down field to Tschirgi. The latter was in the clear, and caught the ball with- 
out losing a stride and continued on his way to the goal. The Navy stands rose 
to a joyous roar. The victory was Navy's, 6 to 0. 



[ Three Hundred Ninety-nine ] 

The Army 

AT last the great day came. We swung into Yankee Stadium, and the Army 
- game, for which we had been waiting since early in the season, was close 
at hand. The Cadets were already in their places. Secretary of the Navy Adams, 
Assistant Secretary of War Payne, Generals, Admirals, and hundreds of other 
officers were among the 75,000 spectators who filled the rest of the stadium. 

Navy won the toss and elected to defend the South goal. Army kicked oft 
and the battle was on. Punts were exchanged, and then Kirn ran 12 yards off 
left tackle for first down. Then a punt was blocked, and Army took possession 
on Navy's 42-yard line. But they failed by a foot to make first down. Punts 
were again exchanged. Here a Navy fumble gave Army the ball on the Navy 32- 
yard line, but Tuttle threw Brown for an 8-yard loss and Army had to kick. 
Army began the second quarter with a drive that reached the Navy 7-yard 
line, where the Navy defense tightened and held for downs. When the Gray- 
legs failed to gain in three downs, Brown dropped back and place kicked a field 
goal. Score: Army, 3; Navy, 0. Then play seesawed until Major Sasse sent in a 
new backfield. A pass from Fields to Kopcsak put the ball on the Navy 1-yard 
line for a 34-yard gain, and Herb carried it over for a touchdown, kicking the 
extra point. The half ended soon after. Score: Army, 10; Navy, 0. 



{ Four Hundred ] • 



Between the halves the Navy stands were tense, silent. But Navy had not 
given up yet, and the team came back in the third quarter with a vengeance. 
James blocked the Graylegs' first punt, and Bryan recovered on Army's 30-yard 
line. But Stecker intercepted a pass, and Army kicked. Navy punted in re- 
turn; the Army receiver dropped the ball when tackled, and Elliot recovered for 
Navy at midfield. Navy tried passes, but one was intercepted, and again Navy 
was set back. But next time, with the ball in Navy's possession on their 45- 
yard line, Kirn dropped back and heaved a tremendous pass down to Tschirgi, 
near the right side of the field beyond the last Army man, and he crossed the 
Army goal. Becht made the placement good. Score: Army, 10; Navy, 7. 

Early in the fourth quarter, an unbalanced exchange of punts gave Army 
the ball on Navy's 35-yard line, and from there, with Stecker doing most of 
the carrying, they pounded to the 1-yard line. On the fourth attempt, Herb 
plunged through for Army's final touchdown, and then kicked the extra point. 
For the rest of the game, Navy kept the Graylegs from gaining, and fought 
valiantly to score. Navy completed a pass for a 24-yard gain to the Army 
40-yard line as the game ended. Score: Army, 17; Navy, 7. 

It had been a great battle, and the Navy team to a man had fought well.

Captain Corry 

Coach Taylor 


AS soon as we returned from September Leave the freebooters headed for Lawrence Field, armed 
with heavy shoes and shin guards. A good squad turned out and hopes for a successful season 
were high. A fine bunch of veterans reported, led by Captain Red Corry, one of the outstanding 
halfbacks in the East. Hutchinson, ail-American fullback of last year was there, along with such 
old timers as George Corson, Bill Kelly, Shovestul, and Dillon. 

Tommy Taylor, head coach, taught the boys lots of good soccer. Tommy is one of the best 
coaches in the game. 

The team had a fairly successful season, winning 4, losing 3, and tying 1 out of 8 starts. The 
boys played superbly at times, but they had their off moments too. "Red" Corry, captain, was the 
star, winning all American honors. Shovestul was one of the best attack men in the game. Kelly, 
Hutchinson, Sowerwine and Dillon also did excellent work. 

The season opened with Franklin and Marshall providing the opposition and a close game resulted. 
The Blue and Gold won 5~3 to open the season in a blaze of glory. Geist, Shovestul, Wigfall, and 
Ellenberger starred on defense, while Corry and Hutchinson played fine games on the offense. 

Then came Haverford with another of their well balanced veteran teams. Navy and Haverford 
always seem to be about equally matched on the soccer field and each year the fur flies when they meet.

Haverford won 2-1, but only after one of the most thrilling soccer games ever to be played at the 
Academy. Navy played excellently and only the very super-excellence of the Haverford team enabled 

them to win. T , ■ 

The first quarter was scoreless, each team playing closely and feeling the other out lhen in 
the second the fireworks started. Haverford scored first, 1 minute after the quarter started. Shove- 
stul evened it up as he scored on a corner kick from Ramey. Then the scoring ceased as both sides 
fought to take the lead. Well into the fourth period Haverford made it 2-1, and although Navy 
pressed hard another goal was not forthcoming. The Navy offense of Hutchinson, Seipt, Sowerwine, 
Shovestul, and Geist kept the Haverford team on the defensive most of the time but couldn t quite

the final stanza the Navy boys hit their stride to boot in three while holding the opposition scoreless. 
The Navy was superior throughout and a marked improvement of play was noted. Kelly, Geist,

A fighting Bucknell team fought in vain to stem the tide of Tommy 
Taylor's freebooters, but the best they could do was to hold the Blue and 
Gold to a 8-2 win. Navy was never in danger but couldn't get going 
until the second half. Navy led 2-0 at the half. The next period was 
all Navy, four goals being driven home. In the final frame the visitors 
rallied to tally twice while Navy scored twice. Outstanding for Navy 
were Corry, Price and Shovestul. Kelly and Dillon also played well. 

The Brown and White from Lehigh brought a surprisingly strong 
team down to battle Tommy Taylor's boys to a stalemate. The game 
was close throughout. Lehigh scored first but Geist knotted the count 
early in the third quarter. The entire first half was hotly contested, 
but the Navy defense was not up to its usual high standard. Late in 
the third quarter Geist again drove in a nice side kick to send Navy out 
ahead 2-1. The fight was on, both teams trying to score again. With 
15 seconds to go Lehigh got a penalty kick and Gould made it good. 
The game ended 2 to 2 and darkness prevented a play off. Geist was by 
far the star of the game. 

The Freebooters lost to Syracuse 3-2 in the rain in a hard fought 
game. While the field was dry the Blue and Gold ran up two goals to 



[ Four Hundred Four ] 


take the lead, but with the rain came Syracuse luck, as the Taylorites 
failed to score again. The Orange-clad men seemed to be better mud- 
ders, and so another was chalked up on the red side of the ledger. 

The Gettysburg kickers bowed to the Navy eleven 7-0. Numerous 
substitutes were used and after the first half with Navy leading 5 to 
the scoring slackened a bit. The Navy team led by virtue of their 
better heading and footwork and superior defense work. Clatanoff, 
the visitors' goalie, kept the score down only by some superb stopping 
of shots. 

The Soccer season ended with a trip to Yale in which Navy was 
defeated 3-0 in a closely played game. At no time was the Navy really 
outplayed or outfought, but goals just weren't. Yale tallied in the first 
quarter, again in the third and the final shot was sunk just as the game 
ended. The day was cold and cloudy and a strong wind was sweeping 
across the field to make play at times a bit erratic. The Yale defense 
each time stopped Captain Corry and Shovestul. Corry, playing his 
last game, was outstanding for Navy. 

Thus the season ended. The record was not a perfect one, but yet 
may be looked upon with pride.

Cross Country 

THE material for cross country this year was excellent, about seventy 
men turning out at the first call. Although Navy lost two out of 
four meets, the season was not a failure by any means. The outstanding 
men were Captain Gibson, Captain-elect Blouin, Burton, Rogers, Has- 
kins and Van Slyke. Hardman, star track and cross country man of 
last year was out for the entire season due to a bad muscle, and his loss 
was severely felt. 

The season opened with Virginia, and the Hill and Dalers took 
them into camp, 21-34. Captain Scotty Gibson led for three miles, 
but Tauck of Virginia overtook him on the home stretch to win . Holden 
of the visitors was third but the rest of the Navy boys finished in a row 
to cinch the meet. The team showed good balance and for an opening 
meet the times were fine. 

Maryland was the next victim and fell 20 to 35 before the Navy 
troops. Seven of the first ten were Navy men. "Scotty" Gibson took

an early lead and gradually increased it. Shore of Maryland was sec- 
ond. Griffith, Blouin and Burton finished abreast for third place honors. 

The Mountaineers of West Virginia ended Earl Thompson's three 
year record of supremacy by a 20-35 win. West Virginia took the first 
four places with Captain "Scotty" taking fifth; Griffith, Blouin, Fahy 
and Haskins finished in order. 

Led by a fleet-footed Sophomore the Blue Devils of Duke gave the 
Hill and Dalers their second successive defeat in the last meet of the 
season. This left the team with a 50-50 record, two wins and two losses. 
Dependable "Scotty" Gibson took second in almost record time to 
close his cross country career. The visitors had a well balanced team 
and the score, 23-32, is fairly indicative of the relative strength of the 

While the season was not as successful as previous ones, an "off 
year" should not be taken too hard. Next year's squad, with Hardman 
well, Blouin, Griffith, Burton and McCutchan back, and Burdick up 
from the Plebes will be a new power in cross country circles.

Capt. Chittenden 

Coach Wilson 



WITH only three losses as black marks in a sixteen game season, 
the basketeers enjoyed one of the most successful years in the his- 
tory of the sport at the Naval Academy. Under Coach Johnny Wilson, 
the game has progressed by noticeable amounts from year to year and 
this fact, plus a good hard schedule, made the record worthy of com- 

The losses of the season were at the hands of Penn, who wasn't 
beaten by a Navy basketball team during the class of Thirty-two's four- 
year stay, of Maryland, who made it a clean sweep in their competition 
with Navy teams during the year at the dedication of the new gym- 
nasium at College Park, and of American University, who although a 
small college, are nevertheless the leaders in local basketball circles. 

The pre -Christmas opening was with Lafayette which was defeated 
by a 35-23 score. It was evident in this first game that the squad had 
a number of possibilities, but they did not fully bloom until later in the 

The Maroon was followed by Lehigh. At no time did the Brown 
and White even threaten, and Coach Wilson took the opportunity to

season a few subs. But the Bethlehemites were impotent even before 
the subs and the score mounted up to 38 to 19 as a final. 

The Wednesday games started with Franklin and Marshall which 
was easily downed, 37 to 15- For the week-end tilt, the team traveled 
to the strongholds of Virginia University where they displayed the 
reputational prowess of the Navy and came home with a 25 to 24 vic- 
tory. Virginia scored fifteen points before Navy was able to find the 
basket, and it looked like a sad day. However, a rally put us only six 
points behind at the end of the half and things looked better. After 
the rest period, the defense became impregnable while the offense func- 
tioned perfectly. With six minutes left, Navy dropped a basket to tie 
the score at 21-21 and in the remaining time scored just enough to eke 
out the victory. 

Then came the first defeat. Lon Jourdet's Penn squad broke the 
victory record in a home game, 27 to 25 in a last minute rally that had 
the fans on their feet most of the time. Navy led most of the way and 
it was only in the closing minutes that the Quakers were able to drop 
three baskets that won the game for them. 

In the Saturday game of that week, Duke University was taken, 
36 to 25, and Navy was avenged for the defeats of two years at the hands 
of the North Carolina Blue Devils. 

Parker, Mgr.

It seemed to be a bad time all around at this point, because the Maryland loss and the American U. defeat 
came right together. At the dedication of the Ritchie Gym on the Maryland campus, the team failed to pull the 
dedication act that usually means defeat for the home team and after a tough battle had only fifteen points to show 
for the opponents' twenty-six. 

American pulled a surprise by flashing a strong attack and a defense that staved off the Navy's rally at the end 
to hold a precious two point lead in a 22 to 20 game. 

From this point on, the season was a clean sweep. The V. M. I. Cadets were powerless before the rejuvenation 
and were swamped 39 to 19- Western Maryland could gain no more than nineteen points, too, in the Saturday game, 
while the local team rolled up a total of forty-nine. In both games the attack functioned perfectly and there was 
never a doubt about the outcome from the opening whistle. 

Then the Ohio State game and the Randolph-Macon. The latter team was hopelessly outclassed and were downed 
48 to 22. In the Buckeye game, the team showed the best form of the whole season and gave a sterling performance 
against two smooth State outfits. At half time we led 20-16, but insofar as the Ohio coach had used his regulars 
only for a few minutes during the first frame, it was apparent that the second half would be a thriller and result a 

After the rest period, Navy started right in pounding on the enemy defenses. With eight minutes gone, the lead 
had been rolled up to eight points, which was the largest advantage gained during the entire battle. Ohio rallied 
and almost instantly the score was tied at twenty-nine all and things began to look bad. The lead see-sawed back 
and forth for the remaining four minutes, and the game was anyone's. However, Bedell dropped a field goal and 
Loughlin slipped over a foul shot and the game was over. Score, 35-32. 


[ Four Hundred Twelve ] 


Only four games now remained on the schedule. Of these, perhaps the strongest team encountered was Pittsburgh. 
This game started out somewhat on the order of the Ohio game, but in the last half Navy rolled up a nice lead and at 
the closing whistle were on the long end of a 29-22 score. 

Haverford and Swarthmore were swamped, 43-19 and 46-25, respectively, in Wednesday games. In the Haverford 
game, the defense was unpierceable and Haverford was able to score only one field goal during the entire first frame. 
Johnny Wilson used all the subs during the second half and it was only while the regulars were off the floor that the 
visitors were able to tally at all. 

The wind-up game of the season was with Harvard. At half time the score stood at sixteen all, a last minute 
rally overcoming a six point lead for the Crimson. In the second period the smooth functioning team swept all opposi- 
tion aside and closed the season with a 33 to 27 victory. 

Of the squad, only three regular players will be lost for next season. Captain Chittenden will of course retire 
from the field, and will take with him Frazer and Osier. Elliott Loughlin will still be on hand, along with Bedell, 
Kastein, Campbell and Christie. The losses still leave a well balanced squad and this, plus the plebe squad that had an 
undefeated season, should make a perfect 1933 record. 


[ Four Hundred Thirteen ] 

Captain Davis 




Coach Webb 

SPIKE WEBB'S boxers swept aside all opposition in the Season of 
Nineteen Thirty-two and emerged from one of the toughest schedules 
of a great many years with a thousand per cent record. Webb presented 
his usual well-balanced team with surprises and craft as the principal 
feature of the whole. 

The schedule was unusual in that for the first time in a great many 
years, the arch-rival, Penn State, was omitted. Also, this year was 
the first year of Navy's retirement from the Intercollegiate Association 
and for these two reasons, the season left a little to be desired. The 
list of Louisiana State, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Syracuse, 
Western Maryland and Penn made up the season. Of these, the first 
two are comparatively new to the ring game and it was expected that 
they would offer little opposition. But the feature of the year was 
that the teams from whom was expected the least trouble offered the 

The opening meet was with Louisiana. The Southerners offered 
good clean opposition and a varied attack and almost gained a victory. 
They won two of the bouts and earned draws in two others giving them 
a total of three, while Navy took the longer end of the total score of 

Back Row: Schwartz, Wendleburc, Black, Newman, List, Schmid, Allen, Blue, Lee, Rockwell, Platt, Fulmer, Fuchs 
Second Row: Gates, Fulp, Shannon, Purdy, Chambers, McNaughton, Elliott, Powell, Johnson, Metzger, Garrison,

Third Row: Kenna, Brownrigc, Pray, Haskins, Shellabarger, Harbold, Jackson, Searcy. Canon, Wahlig, Fortune, Reedy 
Front Row: Miller, Corry, Smith, Muxqutn, Walsh, Nauman, Thomas, Holt, Wright, Long

seven. The indelible impression of this meet was the downfall of 
Fulmer and the bout that Reedy had with Khoury. The latter is of 
mountainous proportions and even the good sized Reedy looked small 
alongside of him. The bout went to almost the end of the second 
round, with Reedy doing a good job when Khoury got across a killer 
that ended the bout. In this meet, Wright, McNaughton and Arthur 
earned points for Navy, while Kenna and Miller were given the draws. 

New Hampshire came next and was downed five to two. The meet 
produced three knockouts, one orthodox and two technical. Dolan 
earned the orthodox one for Navy in the 125 pound class by dropping 
McCaughney of the visitors in the third round. Of the technicals, 
McNaughton scored one for Navy and Meerman one for New Hampshire. 
The other Navy points were scored by Arthur, Reedy and Kenna while 
the opponents gained theirs in the lower weights, one on the technical 
scored over Fulmer and the referee's decision for Snell over Wright in 
the 115 pound class. 

After them came the Tarheel boxers of North Carolina State. These 
were also downed five bouts to two. It was not at all a fast meet, with 
only a very few knockdowns and no knockouts at all. It was very 
close, but not at all exciting. Navy's points were scored by Wright, 
Nauman, who replaced Fulmer at 135 pounds, Kenna, McNaughton 





[ Four Hundred Fifteen ] 

and Arthur, who substituted at Heavyweight for Reedy. The Chapel Hill points were scored over Dolan and Powell 
in the 175 pound weight. 

At the expense of Syracuse, who represent the only defeat for Navy boxers in thirteen years of competition, 
revenge was taken. The defeat last year in the lair of the Orange was avenged four bouts to three. It was the 
toughest meet of the year as its result depended on the light-heavyweight fracas, which was taken by Arthur to give 
Navy the meet. The Syracuse team presented some of the same men who had faced Navy boxers last year and it was 
expected that it would be close. 

Wright scored the first point and Captain Wertheimer of the visitors evened it up at the expense of Miller. Then 
Fulmer got a victory and Syracuse took two quick ones in a row. Kenna lost to Ross and then came the Lee-Moran 

Moran is the most dangerous man in any weight in all college circles and against him Spike pitted a newcomer, 
Lee. It was a tough battle all the way with the fans on their feet from the opening bell until Moran finally crossed 
one over that sank Lee to the canvas. 

McNaughton evened up the score with a technical over Korch and then Arthur made it a Navy day with his third 
round victory over Gutzman. 

The last home meet was with Western Maryland. This also was won five bouts to two. In this meet, Wright, 
Fulmer, and Lee scored knockouts with Arthur and McNaughton earning the other two points. The scores for the 
Green were made in the 125 and the Heavyweight classes, Tuckerman defeating Dolan in the former and Pincura get- 
ting the points over Reedy in the latter. 

Doi *N 

[ Four Hundred Sixteen ] 

The home season over, the team made their only trip of the year to Philadelphia for the Penn meet. Navy took 
the first three bouts in a row. Wright hooked Nicholson all over the ring for a referee's decision and Miller followed 
it up with a like victory over Davis. Then Fulmer floored Mason in the third round, for the third point. 

Lord retaliated in the next weight by getting a technical over Lee when the referee stopped the bout in the second 
round. The stopping of the fight was really not because of any superiority of Lord, but only due to a bad cut over 
Lee's eye. 

Penn took another point in the Kenna-Weeks bout. Kenna dropped Weeks at the end of the second round, and 
only the bell saved him from the count. However, after the rest, Weeks made up the ground lost and Referee McCracken 
gave him the fight. 

McNaughton scored the last whole point for Navy in his bout with James. Then Arthur and Bailey battled for 
three rounds to a draw and the meet was Navy's, four and a half bouts to two and a half. 

The 1932 Boxing season was productive of good men. Perhaps the most outstanding performer of the year was 
McNaughton, who always showed a marked superiority over every man that he fought. He still has two years of 
Boxing ahead of him and should become one of the Greats that Webb has produced. 

Others that appeared for the first time were Miller, Nauman, Reedy, Arthur and Lee. Of these, Arthur graduates 
along with Kenna, leaving practically an intact squad for the season of 1933.

Capt. Goodman 




Coach Schutz 

ALL fall, Mr. Schutz had his boys working out and limbering up. 
- After Christmas Leave all hands settled down to business to prepare 
for the Lehigh meet only two weeks away. Prospects were bright with 
veteran men in all weights but light heavy. The schedule included 
Lehigh, Eastern Champs; Tufts, New England Champs; and Oklahoma 
A. & M., National Champs, in addition to our ancient foes, Princeton 
and Penn State. 

The team swept through the season winning six and losing only to 
Oklahoma A. & M. In all meets each bout was fought as if the entire 
meet hung on its outcome and three "shutouts" were scored. In seven 
meets Navy won 44 bouts and lost 12. The 1932 edition of Mr. Schutz's 
Matmen was perhaps the most powerful and well balanced team in Navy 
Wrestling History. 

Max Silverstein finished his fourth year undefeated in the 155 pound 
class and was again selected to go to the Nationals after additional 
laurels. Captain Danny Goodman won six of his seven bouts as did 
White and Coleman. The loss of Goodman, Silverstein, Loughlin, and 
Hughes will be severely felt but it is believed that Martin, White, Grady,

Coleman, Klinsman, and Kane will carry on to greater heights next year. 
White, Goodman, Coleman, and Silverstein were selected to go to the 
National Meet in quest of individual titles. 

After two weeks of extensive training the Lehigh team, Eastern 
Champions and traditional foes, arrived. The meet was close and hotly 
contested throughout, but the Blue and Gold was victorious, 23-13. 
Hughes, White, and Goodman started the ball rolling by scoring falls in 
quick succession. Lehigh hopes rallied a bit when Joe Loughlin went 
down scrapping via a side chancery applied by Captain Shaw of the 
invaders. Then Silverstein met Bishop, and in a hectic struggle with 
two overtime periods won a decision. In the 165 pound class Gerry Cole- 
man met Peck, Eastern title holder. Conceded a small chance of victory, 
Gerry sallied forth and after five minutes of close battling secured a tight 
body lock from which Peck never moved. That fall sewed up the meet. 
In the next weight Lehigh won a close decision over Klinsman in his 
debut. Kane, after piling up a time advantage slipped into a roll and 
Lehigh ran their total up to 13- 

Led by Captain Goodman who scored his second fall of the season 
in less than 5 minutes, the Grapplers defeated Tufts College, New 
England Champs, 32-0. George Hughes rushed in, grabbed a leg, and 




[ Four Hundred Nineteen ] 

in 5 minutes pinned his man. Then came White's victory over Bosari, Goodman's fall, and Loughlin's big decision. 
Silverstein met a New England Champ in Co-captain Balkus but finally scored a fall. Gerry Coleman met another 
Champ but was again equal to the occasion, and won by a large time advantage. Klinsman showed great improvement 
as he pinned O'Brien. Kane made it a perfect day by winning a decision. 

Next Mr. Schutz took his boys up to Princeton and tanned the Tiger's hide 25-3- "Tito" Jurado took Hughes' 
place and won handily. White, Goodman, and Loughlin piled up overwhelming advantages to win and Silverstein 
threw young Hooker. Coleman and Captain Hooker put on a great battle but Hooker had more top time. Klinsman 
beat Billings as a result of a scrapping heart and good condition. Killer Kane finished the meet with a decisive time 

Next was the epic struggle with the National Champions from Oklahoma A. & M. Hughes nearly threw Hesser, 
but the latter came out and won by three minutes. White wrestled his best bout against Captain Pearce of the visitors. 
Neither could handle the other well, but Pearce's experience as a National Champ enabled him to win by a minute and 
some seconds. Captain Goodman lost a hard fought battle to Razor, and Loughlin lost by a decision. Then Silverstein 
and Moore, another champ, fought in the most exciting battle of the day, and Murph came out with a large time ad- 
vantage. Coleman scored the only fall in an overtime bout. After proving his superiority in the early minutes, a 
wristlock popped Klinsman's shoulder out of joint and Navy was obliged to default the bout. Kane met McGuirk in 
the final bout and lost a decision. The Navy squad lost nothing by its defeat, and the Champions were forced to the 
limit by a scrapping team. 


[ Four Hundred Twenty ] 

The Harvard meet was next and Navy romped away 22-8. Jurado again took a decision and White followed with 
an overwhelming time advantage. Danny Goodman then threw his man in less than three minutes and Loughlin fol- 
lowed with another decision. Silverstein and Coleman were forced by the defensive tactics of the visitors to win only 
decisions. Lehman, a new-comer, lost a close decision and Kane lost on a sudden fall. 

The Brown meet was unimpressive as the boys rolled up a 34-0 win. Martin wrestled his first bout and won nicely. 
White continued the good work with a fall. Goodman set a new record by pinning his man in 37 seconds. Wagstaff 
in his debut threw Capt. Spiwak. Grady took Silver's place and pinned Waters in one minute. Gerry won a decision, 
and Lehman and Kane concluded the rout with two more time advantages. 

Next came the annual meet with our ancient foes, Penn State. The Nittany Lion was undefeated, but that mat- 
tered not as Navy closed the season in a blaze of glory with a 32-0 victory. Martin threw their captain. Then White, 
Goodman, and Loughlin beat previously undefeated men. Silverstein scored a fall, and Coleman won an easy decision. 
Klinsman returned to the mat and won by a fall. Kane ended the meet and season by winning his bout. 

So ended a highly successful season. And as it closed there were many who predicted even greater things for Navy 
wrestling in the future.

Coach Ortland 




THE 1932 team turned out by Coach Ortland was one 
of Navy's best. Victorious in all encounters but the 
one with Yale, the tankmen finished in second place 
in the Eastern League. Thompson and Mustin were 
again the stars, Thompson finishing second in the 
league in scoring while Mustin was well up in the 
first ten. 

Losses through graduation will be hard to replace. 
Mustin, West, Atkins, and Vrooman will be missed, 
but Henry Ortland has always been able to turn out 
winners and with Ray Thompson, McCampbell, and 
Ashworth next year should be no exception. 

C. C. N. Y. went down in defeat in the opening 
meet 46-25, Navy winning five of eight first places. 
In the second meet a strong Rutgers team was beaten 
49-22. The next week Brown was defeated by the 
same score, Brown taking but one first and one second.

In the Perm meet, Ray Thompson suffered his first 
defeat in the 50, but won the 100 easily. The score 
was Navy 42, Penn 29. 

The Mermen split even on the only foreign trip, 
Yale winning 51-20 and Columbia losing 42-25. 
Thompson and Mustin who took two firsts apiece and 
McCampbell, who won the diving, were the features 
of the Columbia meet. 

The next night Yale wrecked championship hopes 
as Thompson took the only two first places for Navy. 
The Yale team showed great strength and the defeat 
was no disgrace. This meet gave Yale the League title. 

The season closed with the Syracuse meet, a com- 
plete route, Navy scoring almost at will to take every 
first place. 

The Intercollegiates held for the first time at the 
Academy furnished thrills a plenty for all hands. Navy 
took two of the individual crowns. McCampbell eas- 
ily proved his superiority over all other diving entrants. 
Mustin came in third in the 50. Thompson finished 
the program by winning a close race in the 100.

AS the season opened Coach Foster had another strong 
- aggregation on hand with Captain Seely, Bigaou- 
ette, Pasche, and Atkins as returning veterans, and 
with men like Miller, Gunn, and Harral to back them 
up. The team lost two games out of six, but one of 
these was to the N. Y. A. C, a group of old time stars. 
The 1932 edition was strong, but Pennsylvania finally 
hit on a winning combination and Navy's first collegi- 
ate Water Polo defeat since 1928 resulted. 

The first game with C. C. N. Y. resulted in a one- 
sided victory for the Blue and Gold, 46-25. 

The second game saw Rutgers routed 70-33. 
Miller ran wild with seven goals and Frank Bigaouette 
was a tower of strength on the defense. 

N. Y. A. C. 50, Navy 18. Thus hopes for an un- 
defeated season went glimmering. The patron saints 
of Water Polo were a bit too good.

Another Navy Score 

The Quakers rallied in the late minutes to nose the 
Navy poloists out 39-32. The game was a thriller, 
but the Penn men were not to be denied. The boys 
fought hard and went down with true Navy spirit. 

The Suicide Club returned to the blue side of the 
ledger with decisive wins over Columbia and Yale on 
successive evenings, to close the season. The Columbia 
game ended 48 to 9 and Yale went down 56-13. 

By virtue of the defeat by Penn, Navy lost her 
Water Polo title, but the season's record is still one 
to be proud of. Always Navy teams have been noted 
for their spirit and aggressiveness and the 1932 Water 
Polo Club has been no exception. Miller was third 
in Leagure scoring and Atkins fourth. 

The loss of Captain Seely, "Big" Bigaouette, At- 
kins, Luker, and Harral will be felt, but it is expected 
that Miller, Gunn, Pasche, and Curtis, backed by this 
year's strong Plebe Team, will carry on in the future.

WITH veterans back in all events but the rope climb, 
prospects at the start of the season were bright for 
Coach Mang and Captain Jukes. The team more than 
lived up to expectations as it swept through the season 
without even being seriously pressed. The number of 
victories won by the teams which Mr. Mang has 
coached reached the astounding total of 107. 

A number of outstanding performances were turned 
in. Denton broke the Academy record in the flying 
rings and later stepped out to shatter the intercollegiate 
mark in the same event. Curtze won eleven firsts in 
the horizontal bar and parallel bars. Captain Jukes 
turned in some excellent tumbling and was beaten but

performances on the side horse and Munger'was far 
above the averaje on the parallel bars. 

This gym team was probably the strongest in 
Academy history. Springfield, unbeaten in three years, 
was defeated. In two meets the opposition failed to 
place a single first, and in no meet did they get more 
than one. The league title remained at the Naval 
Academy for the tenth time. 

N. Y. U. was beaten 42-12. Then M. I. T. fell 
46-8 at Boston. Temple was swamped 45-9 with the 
aid of Denton's record breaking 646 out of a possible 
660 on the rings. Springfield fell 37-17 and Princeton 
was swamped 38-16. Dartmouth provided the season's 
finale as they went down by the same score. This was 
the last appearance of Captain Jukes, Munger, Fawkes, 
Nuessle, and Leverett. However, with Curtze, Den- 
ton, Connolly, Matthews, Grant, Stone, and Fernald 
returning, 1933 should see more Navy victories.

THE Navy swordsmen closed a good season in March by taking the 
Intercollegiate Sabre Team Championship. Not for ten years had 
the Blue and Gold held the title in the heavy weapon, and for the last 
four years Columbia had kept the trophy. The Light Blue were confi- 
dent of repeating, but Rojo Adams and Dimmie Dimitrijevic put a quietus 
on their hopes for 1932. The R.H.E. Grasson trophy in sabre belongs to 
Navy. To Hubert Pirotte, Navy's sabre coach, belongs much credit. 
The high honors of the Intercollegiates went to Yale, Three Weapon and 
Epee Champions. Army, Foils Champions, were second, and Navy, 
Sabre Champions, were third. Dimitrijevic gained third place indi- 
vidual honors in sabre. Adams was in the Finals but failed to place. 
Galantin went forward to the Epee Finals and also failed to place. 
Both Kait and Tilburne moved up into the Semi-Finals in the foils.

swamped M. I. T. 13-4, and then were pushed by Princeton to make it a 
9-8 Navy tally. Bob Grasson brought the Eli blades here to repeat their 
last year's 9-8 victory over the Blue and Gold. In a burst of energy the 
Regimental swordsmen took Penn 12-5. The trip away was to Cam- 
bridge, where a fence-off of a tie was necessary to give Navy the victory 
over Harvard. The dual meet season ended with a 9-8 win over 

In the foils, Tilburne and Kait were outstanding during the entire 
season and received valuable support from Grubbs. One may expect a 
good chance at the Iron Man next year. Captain Van Evera and his 
epee team-mate, Galantin, pulled more than one meet out of the fire and 
aided in all six victories. Dimitrijevic and Adams put a shining crown 
of glory on their half and half dual meet record by taking the sabre team 
trophy. Six wins, two losses, and one intercollegiate championship 
constitute a successful season in any sport.

THE Small Bore Team, now as always, continues to hang up records 
that any congregation of sporting souls would be proud to claim. 
Last year it was believed that no better performance could be reasonably 
expected, but events have shown that last year's routine was merely an 
indication of coming achievements. Consider the following: 

The team had an undefeated season in individual matches. 

The team had higher average match scores for the season than has 
ever before been attained by this or any other team. 

McDougal set a new individual shoulder to shoulder range record 
of 289 in the match against West Virginia.

The team tied the national record set last year when Navy marked 
up the score of 1413. 

And now let us look at the reasons: Lieutenant Wolleson, U. S. N., 
officer representative and Coach Extraordinary, and Lieutenant Yeaton, 
U. S. M. C, assistant coach. Their rare knowledge of the psychology 
of riflemen and their difficulties have made the difference between a 
"bull" and a "nine" many a time. Hunter, the captain, has for the 
past four years been instrumental in establishing all the team records 
set during that time. 

As the season progressed, Navy defeated Penn State, V. M. I., 
George Washington, Maryland, West Virginia, Carnegie Tech, N. Y. U., 
and Georgetown. With a 1357 Navy won the Sectional Intercollegiates, 
but fell six points short of the score which won the Nationals.

THE 1931 Crew season was similar to a good many other 
Navy seasons — it had its ups and downs, but wound up 
in a grand finish. The varsity lost to Columbia, won 
from M. I. T., and lost to Syracuse and to Penn and Har- 
vard, but emerged from the Poughkeepsie as National 
Intercollegiate Champions. 

The J. V.'s lost to a strong M. I. T. crew and to Syra- 
cuse, and came in fifth in the Junior Varsity race at Pough- 
keepsie. The 150's won from the Syracuse lightweights 
and lost to Penn in their only dual races, and in the Henley 
placed third. 

This season was the first full one for Hubbard Hall, 
the new boathouse. Soon after Christmas a large number 
of candidates for the various crews began to work out

The 193 1 Season 

regularly in the indoor tank, and the facilities infinitely 
better than those of the old wooden shed added to the 
popularity of the sport throughout the long training season. 

This season was also the last for Old Dick Glendon. 
The venerable sage of the rowing profession had coached 
Navy crews during twenty-five seasons, including the one 
which produced a Navy World Champion Olympic crew. 
With the magnificent conclusion of the 1931 season he re- 
tired, revered by all, leaving the destiny of Navy rowing 
in the hands of Buck Walsh. 

The weather was fairly good during the pre-season 
practice, and on the best days Dick took his boys up to 
Round Bay on long conditioning rows. After several 
combinations had been tried, Shelton was settled upon as 





[ Four Hundred Thirty-fife } 


varsity stroke, with Captain Schoeni at seven. Hunter, Anderson, and Hartley filled the remaining 
portside seats, with Gray, Steffanides, and Phillips as their counterparts on the starboard. In the 
Junior Varsity boat, Strean and Quirk were the nucleus, and in the Third Varsity, Macfarlane and 
Nelson. Kauffman stroked the 150's. 

The first race of the season was with Columbia, up on the Harlem. The crews were on even terms 
during the first part of the race, but the Blue and White oarsmen were smoother and steadier, and 
slowly gained a lead which the Blue and Gold couldn't quite overcome at the last. 

The following week, with M. I. T. at Annapolis, the Navy oarsmen began to round into shape. 
The water was rough, but all the races went off on schedule. The 150's rowed first, and although 
Sherman Clark's Navy crew trailed slightly during the first part of the race, their smooth, steady 
stroke soon brought them ahead, and at the finish they were leading by a half a length of open water. 
The Tech Jayvees, being practically as strong as their varsity, won their race easily, lengthening their 
initial lead to nearly two lengths at the last. The varsity race was a thriller. Tech got off to the 
better start, and, rowing a higher stroke, led at the mile. But they couldn't keep it up, and as they 
began to crack Shelton raised the beat and Navy forged steadily ahead, crossing the finish line a length 
and a half ahead of their opponents. 

Two weeks later came the Syracuse race, which was the low ebb of the season. The Orange 
and Black oarsmen made a clean sweep on the Severn. 

The following week Navy met Harvard and Penn in a three-cornered meet up on the Schuylkill. 
Navy, using a new stroke, showed considerable improvement, but not enough to ease out Harvard. 
All three crews got off to good starts on the mile-and-a-half row, but Harvard led all the way, Navy 
finishing a length and a half behind and Penn a poor third. 



[ Four Hundred Thirty-six ] 


As June week began and the Varsity was engaged in preparing themselves for Poughkeepsie, 
the lightweights took their turn on the Schuylkill in the Henley Regatta. 

Then came graduation day, and the year of 1930-31 was ended for all save Old Dick and his boys. 
These betook themselves to Camp Ingram, up on the Hudson, and settled down to prepare for the 
performance which was to startle the world. Nine of the Nation's best crews were entered in the 
Poughkeepsie Regatta, the climax of the rowing season, and among these Navy was hardly a favorite. 
Having lost three of the shorter races earlier in the season to crews which we were now to face again, 
we were conceded only a chance to place fourth or fifth. But that wasn't the thought in the minds 
of the Eight as they pulled out to their stake boat to start in that memorable race. Hunter now 
occupied the stroke position, Schoeni, Anderson, Steffanides, Crinkley, Shelton, Jewett, and Gray 
comprising the rest of the crew, with Bobbie Fulton in the coxwain's seat. 

The rain, which had been threatening all day, was pouring down when the starter's pistol barked 
and the row of shells sprang into action. Washington set the pace, holding the lead for the first 
three miles. Here Navy raised the stroke a bit and quickly overhauled Washington. Then Cornell, 
defending champions and pre-race favorites, got worried and began to sprint. They closed up a 
bit and passed Washington, but the Navy Eight refused to yield their margin, and finished a half 
length of open water in the lead. Following Cornell came Washington, California, Syracuse, Penn, 
Columbia, Wisconsin, and M. I. T. 

The Navy crew had rowed a race which drew unstinted praise from the whole rowing world. 
In the other races, the J. V.'s finished fifth and the Plebes fourth, but we could stand that. For the 
crew championship of the nation was back, for the first time since 1925, to the place where we have 
always felt it truly belonged.

Captain James 

A Private D, 

Coach Finlayson 




WITH Capt. Jerry South lost to the team for practically the entire season, 
Coach Finlayson started with a heavy handicap. Only three regulars 
were back, and prospects were none too good, but the squad dug in with a 
will and a scrapping aggregation resulted. Regular practice began March 4, 
but Assistant Coach Clem Spring had already had the boys out for several 
pre-season workouts. The defense was big and heavy and always a menace 
to would-be goal shooters. Buck James was the defensive star but able 
assistance was given him by Pressy, Kirkpatrick, and Hagberg. The offense 
had a lot of experienced men, who although not regulars the previous year 
had turned in excellent work. Moncure led the attack, scoring 20 points 
during the season, while Castree, Elliot, O'Neil and Bowers crashed through 
at needed moments. It was a well balanced team, which won five out of six 
starts and rolled up 76 points against 12 for the opposition. The only set- 
back was dealt by Maryland, Navy's arch enemy. 

Coach Finlayson 's charges opened the season quite auspiciously as they 
sank the Green Terrors of Western Maryland 10-0. Only in the first half

The Game from Abo 

Ward, Mgr. 

The 193 1 Season 

were the "Terrors" any terror at all to the Blue and Gold attack. They 
surprised all hands by holding Navy to a 3-0 score in the first half. Moncure 
and Elliott led the attack as the Western Maryland crew fell before the 
onslaught. "Buck" James was the outstanding star of the game. Time 
after time he stopped the Terror attacks cold. To Lynn Elliott went the 
honor of the first goal of the season, his ice breaker coming after only fifty 
seconds of play. 

The Golden Tornado from Georgia Tech proved to be hardly more than 
a mild April breeze. Tech was the second victim of a rampant Navy crew 
of Ham'n'Eggers as they were swept aside 24-1. The game started as a close 
contest. Navy drew first blood on a high shot by O'Neil, but the Tech 
crew soon tied up at one all. After two scoreless minutes the Navy avalanche 
was under way. When the gale cleared at the half the scoreboard read, 
"Navy 16, Ga. Tech, 1." Finlayson used substitutes frequently, but still 
the goals rained in, the subs continuing the scoring started by the varsity. 
Bowers was high scorer with four goals. 




[ Four Hundred Thirty-nine ] 


Lafayette came, but went the way of all others under a deluge of first half 
goals. The final score was 11-0. Dyson, the visitors' goalie, played superbly 
to keep the Navy score as low as it was. Reorganizing their defense after the 
disastrous first period, the Lafayette stickmen held Navy to one lone goal, a 
beautiful shot by O'Neil. Moncure ran riot with four goals, and Castree and 
Ferguson were second with two apiece. 

Brown arrived with a great record and everything pointed to a hard, close 
battle. Advance predictions were correct and, in one of the hardest fought 
games of the season, the Brown men were repulsed 12-2. The game more closely 
resembled football than Lacrosse, but Navy speed and strength stood out and 
proved to be too great an obstacle for the men of Brown. Sammy Moncure 
continued to lead in scoring, with four goals. Buck James again played a sterling 
game and looked to be one of the best defense men in the country. 

Lehigh, down from the mountains of Pennsylvania, looked on amazed as 
Sammy Moncure ran riot. Moncure on the offense and James on the defense 
spelled defeat for the Brown and White. The final score was 18-1. Elliott, 
Bowers, and West turned in able work on the offense and Pressy and Hagberg 
were shining lights on the defense. The teamwork, both offensively and de- 
fensively, was one of the high points of the season. 

Harvard played host to the Ham'n'Eggers, but the Finlayson stickmen 
crushed the Crimson 12 to 1. Jack Castree started the fireworks with a goal in 
less than a minute. The first half was hard fought, and at the end of it the score 


[ Four Hundred Forty ] 



stood 4 to 0, all Navy. In the second period the superior condition of the Navy 
boys began to tell and eight more goals were driven home, while the Crimson 
tallied once. Harvard showed some brilliant stick work, but couldn't stand 
the fast pace set by the Blue and Gold warriors. Moncure continued to score 
almost at will with six tallies. Elliott and Castree kept up the good work with 
two apiece. 

The Terrapins of Maryland were too much for the Navy twelve in the annual 
June week encounter. 

For the first twenty-two minutes the game was scoreless, both sides playing 
carefully. The ejection of Pressy on a foul gave Maryland an extra man and 
they were quick to utilize their advantage. The Terrapins sank three shots in 
less than a minute. Another goal just before the half ended left Navy on the 
short end of a 4-0 count. 

Moncure revived Navy hopes as the second half started by slipping past 
Deckman to sink one. But the Terrapins had no intentions of letting up and 
continued to hit the net for four more markers to make the final count 8-1. 

This game saw Rodgers, O'Neil, Gilbert, and Hagberg playing their last 
game for Navy. 

It was a great season, which saw Navy run wild over all teams but one. 
The Maryland defeat was a bitter pill, but there are other years, and other teams, 
and other seasons.

THE Blue and Gold cinder team for the season 1931 proved to be the strong- 
est ever turned out to represent Navy. In five dual meets, Navy won 
three by decisive scores and lost only to Notre Dame and Ohio State after 
hard struggles. At the Penn Relays for the second consecutive year the 
Navy men turned in some surprisingly good performances, the sprint medley 
team being the outstanding Navy threat. This quartet broke the old 
world's record for the event, but was nosed out in a fast finish by Ohio State. 
During the season Fraser, Underwood and Hardman bettered Academy 
marks. Underwood broke the shot record and then went out and bettered 
his own mark. Hardman missed the 880 record by tenths of a second once 
or twice, and rang up a mile record that should stand for some time. Hard- 
man's feat of running the mile in 4:18 marked him as one of the strong con- 
tenders for a place on the Olympic team in that event. Don Fraser turned 
in some splendid performances in the high timbers, breaking Whitey Lloyds' 
old record. Wally Coleman was handicapped all season by the slow mend- 
ing of his broken leg, but turned in some good performances in the 220.

The 193 1 Season 

Doug Wright was a consistent winner in the discus, and Dale Bauer gath- 
ered in quite a few points in the broad jump and high jump. Captain 
MacKenzie, although running against some of the fastest men in the country, 
turned in some very creditable performances. Evans in the 440 and Kirn 
and Kane in the javelin gave Navy other needed points. All in all, Earl 
Thompson turned out a well balanced team that was surprisingly strong in 
several events. 

Earl Thompson as a coach has raised Navy Track from nowhere at all 
to a high plane. Each succeeding year sees a stronger team in the field, 
and each year sees the sport more popular. 

Navy opened the 1931 season with a decisive win over the Indians from 
William and Mary College. The score, 71-2/3 to 54-1/3 gives some idea 
of the decisiveness of the victory. The Virginians showed considerable 
power, but the strong Navy combination walked off with ten firsts. It 
was an interesting meet, chock full of thrills and excitement. With the 
wind favoring him, Don Fraser opened the season with a brilliant high 




[ Four Hundred Forty-three } 

hurdle race, lowering the old mark .2 seconds. Then in a close 100 yard dash, Skipper MacKenzie nipped the tape a 
breath ahead of Smither of W. and M. The Indians took their two firsts on the track in the mile and 220. Navy 
came back to the first place column in the quarter, which Evans won easily. Blouin and Green raced in easily to walk 
off with the two mile. Hardman, running his first varsity race, showed excellent form as he piled up a tremendous 
lead in the half and won in the excellent time of 1 :58.2. Fraser ended the track scoring with another fast win in the 
low timbers. Connaway was outstanding in the field events. By bar height he broke the old academy record in the 
high jump, but actual height failed to yield the desired 6' 1". In the shot, Underwood showed the way to all others 
with a fine heave of 44 feet A l A inches. The Indians scored easy firsts in the broad jump and javelin to end the meet. 
The team's showing was quite impressive for an opening meet. 

Coach Thompson took twelve men to the Penn Relays. From these he made up three relay teams and entered 
three in the individual events. All hands brought glory and renown to themselves and to the Naval Academy. The 
first Navy appearance came as a climax to a day of record breaking performances. The Sprint Medley Relay was the 
thriller of the meet. Coming from behind in the anchor lap, Hardman rushed on into the lead. In a thrilling finish 
that saw both teams shatter a world record, Beetham of Ohio State nosed out Hardman. Evans, Newton, MacKenzie, 
and Hardman composed the team. In the shuttle hurdle relay, the team made up of Newton, Cox, Kastein and Fraser 
finished third in the finals behind Yale and Ohio State. The final relay race saw Colgate nose out the Blue and Gold 
in the mile relay. The team, composed of Connolly, Coleman, Hardman, and Evans, pushed the Colgate boys all the 
way. On the second leg, Wally saw an Army shirt ahead; so he proceeded to move into second place, ahead of the 

Underwood and Connaway finished sixth in the shot and high jump. MacKenzie won both his preliminary 
heats, but lost in the semifinals of the 100 vard dash. 


[ Four Hundred Forty-jour ] 


The performances of the Navy squad were a decided improvement over those of the year before, and promised better 
ones for the future. 

The Maryland meet was all Navy, the Old Liners only getting 25 points while the Blue and Gold rolled up 101 and 
gathered in eleven firsts. The team showed good balance and looked well in all events. 

Then came the Irish from South Bend. Led by Captain O'Brien, the Notre Dame squad defeated the Blue and Gold 
78-5/6 to 47-1/6. The track events proved the downfall of Navy, the Irish taking every first place. It was a fast, 
hard fought meet, but Notre Dame had the more outstanding performers. Underwood put over the outstanding per- 
formance of the day when he bettered the old Academy shot record by seven inches, his new mark being 45 feet 1 inch. 

Navy, 75, West Virginia, 51 tells one part of the battle between the Navy cinder men and the Mountaineer track- 
sters. The closeness of the scrap is not shown by the score, however. It was nip and tuck all the way until Evans, 
Connolly, and Musgrave took a clean sweep of the quarter. From then on it was all Navy. Don Fraser lowered his 
own time in the high hurdles with a fast 15-4 second win. Hardman, running the mile for the first time of the year, 
tied the mile record and won the 880 in almost record time. Kane and Kirn continued to take one-two in the javelin, 
and Underwood turned in another fine performance in the shot. 

In the June Week meet, the Scarlet and Gray from Ohio State again took Navy's measure. Led by Keller, who 
topped the high timbers in 14.6 seconds, the Buckeyes took the meet by a score of 71-2/3 to 54—1/3- As regards first 
places, it was even, both teams winning six with one event in a tie. The Buckeyes, however, showed greater strength 
in the second and third places and thus won the meet. Hardman was the Navy star as he lowered the nine-year-old 
mile record with the splendid time of 4 minutes 18 seconds. He also won the 880 in fast time. 

While the meet ended in an unsatisfactory manner, especially for a June Week meet, still it left nothing to be 
desired in times and close finishes. It closed a highly successful season for Earl Thompson and the Navy track team.

IT J XT ■»» 


THE season of 1931 got under way onFebruary twenty-third with well 
over fifty men turned out. For several weeks the armory resounded 
to the crack of leather against wood as the boys got their batting eyes in 
shape and the pitchers began to whip their hurling arms into trim. 
With many veterans to choose from and an unexcelled coaching staff to 
choose them prospects were good. With such sluggers as Byng and 
Fitzgerald from last year's team and with Hodgkins and Hurley still 
slapping the apple in second class summer fashion our dynamite looked 
powerful enough. Moreoever, Coombs, Englehart, Schultz, and Daven- 
port looked like a fine quintet to feed the ball past the opposition. 
Captain Tommy Ashworth, skipper par excellence, led the team in a 
noble manner and the "Kid" taught them lots of baseball. 

Rain foiled Mohler and his Maulers in their season's opener against 
Vermont. Lehigh invaded Annapolis in the next scheduled game and 
handed us a 6-5 defeat in twelve innings. It was tough to have to open 
the season with such a heart-breaking defeat. Both teams played good 
ball, Navy opening with a bang and four runs in the first inning, but

the Brown and White slowly closed the gap and went on to win. A 
good crowd was on hand and from all appearances baseball was to be 
more popular than ever before. 

Next came the Quakers and by playing heads up baseball handled 
Navy the second straight defeat of the season by a score of 10-3. The 
Navy defense was quite subnormal and materially aided the sharp field- 
ing of the visitors in adding to the margin of victory. 

Wes Byng had been playing first base the first two games, Mohler 
wanting an extra slugger in the infield. However, with the coming of 
the Fordham Rams, the "Kid" shifted him back to his old berth in 
center field and moved Tom Hurley up to first base. In spite of the great 
reputation of Fordham, the new combination clicked and the "Mohler 
Maulers" ran riot on the bases to score a smashing victorv, 12-8. As 
usual, Navy scored heartily in the inital round, and held on to the lead 
throughout. Wes Byng garnered the first homer of the season to aid 
in the victory.

For a change, it failed to rain for either exhibition game and local fans had a wonderful opportunity to see the 
Washington Senators and the Baltimore Orioles perform. Both won by a score of 4-1. Dave Davenport created quite 
a favorable impression on the big leaguers by his fine twirling in both contests. 

Harvard, Barry Wood, and fine baseball proved too great a combination to overcome and the Crimson won 4-3 
in a close, hard fought game. Wood and Company, by a bit of master playing, scored their tying and winning runs in 
the eighth frame. Lafayette arrived, but departed on the short end of a 7-2 score as a result of a third inning batting 
spree which netted 6 runs. Jupiter Pluvius scored his second victory as rain washed out the Villanova contest but the 
fine weather aided the Washington and Lee Generals to sink us with a three run salvo in the ninth. 

The weather did something, and Navy rolled up two big victories over Temple and Duke. Temple was scuttled 
16-4, and Duke succumbed 13-8. Dave Davenport looked good in both games, going the route gainst Temple and 
relieving Coombs against Duke. Dave again came to the fore as he stopped up the Richmond bats while Fitzgerald 
slapped out two home runs. 

The Irish of Notre Dame added another Navy scalp to their athletic record belt as the Mohlermen bowed 5-2 
in a close game. The game was played at South Bend and due to the poor field was a bit slow. Navy's big first inning 
failed to dampen the Irish spirit, and Notre Dame closed with a rush to win in the final frames. 

Mohler used a sub and then a sub for the sub in the seventh, and two runs were scored causing William and Mary 
to go down in defeat 6-4- A drizzling rain slowed the game up, but the closeness of the score gave all hands a fine 
afternoon of thrills. 

The Western Maryland Terrors proved to be an easy mark. When the track meet was over the score board looked 
like the results of a football game. 32-5 was the verdict as Navy rolled up the largest score of the season. 

Probably the most colorful game of the season was the one with Hosei University of Japan. The Japanese had a 

At l\lw 



[ Four Hundred Forty-eight ] 


clever team. Davenport and Suzuki engaged in a pitchers' battle but Dave weakened in the final two frames. The 
speed and spectacular fielding of trie little Nipponese were largely responsible for their 9-4 win. 

Gettysburg was next and by virtue of possessing a great pitcher was slated for an easy win. All the big league 
scouts saw, however, was the "Kid's Klouters" rapping the ball all over the lot to pound out a 16-10 win. What was 
to be a pitchers' duel turned out to be a free hitting affair. Lefty Coombs, besides pitching a fine game, came to bat in 
the fifth with the bases loaded and drove out a homer to center field. 

A ninth inning rally by the Old Liners of Maryland gave them a win over the hard-scrapping Navy nine. The 
score was knotted until the last two innings, when Maryland opened up to win 6-2. 

A big Navy rally in the ninth closed a seeminglv overwhelming lead by the Mt. St. Marys nine, but it was all in 
vain since the Mountaineers duplicated the feat in the twelfth and the game closed 12-7 on the red side of the ledger. 

The day of days arrived— Saturday of June Week. Wesley Fesler, the great Ohioan, led his Buckeyes from Ohio 
State to Annapolis, and Navy fell 12-7. 

Hodgkins, 1932 captain, led the team in batting with a .447. Hurley, catcher and first sacker was second with a 
.435. Dave Davenport, although a youngster and a pitcher, cracked out the astounding percentage of .375- Coombs 
and Davenport shared the hurling honors, assisted by Joe Thompson, Egon Englehardt and Schultz. The big explos- 
ives were fired by Fitzgerald and Byng, who smashed out some powerful home runs. These two played great baseball 
in the outer garden between turns at bat. Tommy Ashworth was almost always reliable to get on base. His uncanny 
eye for judging whether a pitch was a ball or a strike gave him many a free pass. 

The season's record was not so good from the standpoint of won and lost, the Mohlermen winning but 8 games 
and losing 9. However, the boys had a fine spirit and worked together quite well. Much more is expected in coming

Coach Gaudet 


THE 1931 tennis season was the best in some years, with nine wins and 
only two defeats. Four games were rained out. Among these was the 
first scheduled meet, that with Columbia. We dropped the first meet played 
to Yale, won from Hampden-Sidney, and lost to Harvard. From then on, 
our record was unblemished, and we won the remaining eight meets handily. 

Yale took their meet 7 to 2. Although Johnson and Loughlin extended 
their respective opponents, Yale won 5 of the 6 single matches and 2 of the 
3 doubles matches. 

Hampden-Sidney proved a setup, Thomas defeating Robertson for the 
Virginians' only tally. The meet went off in quick time, as not a single 
match went to three sets. 

Then Harvard came to administer our second defeat of the season. 
Loughlin won his singles bout, and he and Johnson downed their doubles 
opponents. Harvard won the other matches. 

The Washington and Lee game was rained out, and then we played 
Franklin and Marshall on water-soaked courts, taking their measure 8 to 1, 
no match going beyond 2 sets. 

William and Mary met the same fate, losing 8 to 1, although some of the 
matches were harder fought than in the preceding meet.

The 193 1 Season 

The Pittsburgh game was another that had to be canceled because of 
rain, and Virginia was the next victim. They bowed 7 to 2, winning one 
singles and one doubles match. 

Penn State was crushed 8 to 1 in the next meet. We won all but one 
singles match, which Gold yielded after forcing into three sets. 

Rain canceled the Washington and Jefferson meet, and Lafayette came 
next, in one of the best contests of the season. They won half the singles 
matches, and forced two of the doubles matches into extra sets, though 
they lost all three. 

Maryland proved an easier mark than had been expected, winning only 
one match of the nine. 

Temple was the only team that was completely shut out. The Phila- 
delphians were completely outclassed, only two of the matches being ex- 
tended to a third set. 

The Penn meet was a fitting climax to the season. Navy won from the 
Quakers for the first time in thirteen years. Each team took three of the 
singles matches, but Navy won all of the doubles. No victory could have 
brought more satisfaction to Coach Gaudet and his players than did this 
one, and it was a fine ending of a fine season.

Cann, Mgr. 



FOR a number of years Navy Rifle teams have been just about the cream 
of their kind. However, the N. R. A. would not sponsor an intercol- 
legiate match this year, and this made the going a little more difficult than 
in the past. For no college teams appeared on our schedule, and we had to 
shoot only against teams whose principal occupation is shooting. Even 
against them we held our own admirably, winning the first four matches 
and losing only the final meet with the D. C. National Guard. Our victims 
included the Maryland National Guard, the 107th and the 71st Regiments of 
the New York National Guard, and our most feared opponents, the Quantico 

In the first meet against the Maryland guardsmen, Navy won by a score 
of 2258 to 1835, Robbins of Navy taking individual honors with a 236. 
Eight Navy men finished higher than the best of the soldiers, and we took 
first in all four events. 

We next disposed of the 107th Regiment by a score of 2285 to 2267. 
Navy gained their edge in the slow firing at 200 and 600 yards, the guards- 
men leading by three points in the rapid firing at 200 and 300 yards. Hain

with a 238, tied with Devereux of the visitors for honors. Navy outstripped 
their opponents throughout the season in the 600 yards slow fire. This was 
due, in no small measure, to Lieutenant Wolleson 's uncanny accuracy in 
figuring out the wind at each instant. 

We next met the 71st Regiment at Peekskill, N. Y., and carried off a 
2272 to 2166 victory. Back to Dahlgren Hall came the trophy "Little 
David," who has stood behind the firing line at this annual match since 1906. 
Harper and McDougal, with 234's, tied for first honors for the match. 

Then came a triangular meet with the Quantico Marines and the Phila- 
delphia Marine Barracks. The scores were: Navy, 2291, Quantico, 2263, 
and Marine Barracks, 2257. Harper, with a 238, topped all others, some of 
whom held the rank of 'Distinguished Marksman," the highest rifle award 
given. Navy's scores were all well rounded. 

The unfortunate finish of the season was the 2311 to 2291 defeat at the 
hands of the D. C. National Guard. This was the first defeat for Navy in 
rifle for two years. But it failed to dim the excellence of the work which 
had been done by the team throughout the season.

HEN you give

Wrist Watch Band, you give him 
something he'll want to wear — 
always. Mannish, good-looking 
— and never any question of 
wrong size because a clever clasp 
hooks fast to any link of the band. 
Indeed, it's this patented "can't- 
slip-through" clasp that makes 
it so easy for him to put on and 
take off without danger of drop- 
ping his watch. This same safety 
feature, of course, applies when 
he slides the band up his fore-

A wonderful gift for a man.

Camels are Made fresh 
and Kept fresh 

Parched or toasted tobacco has no more 
chance to get into a Camel than a 7 5 -lb chorus 
man has to get by a recruiting officer. 
Every Camel is fragrant with the cool, mild 
flavor of choice sun-ripened tobaccos, fresh 
with natural moisture. 

Camels are never parched or toasted — the 
Reynolds method of scientifically applying 
heat guarantees against that. They reach you 
in the air-sealed Camel Humidor Pack fresh 
and in prime smoking condition no matter 
where you're stationed. Desert wind won't dry 
them, nor a pea soup fog make them soggy. 

Give your throat a twenty- four hour leave 
from the harsh hot smoke of parched dry-as- 
dust tobaccos. Switch to fresh Camels for just 
one day. Then quit them — if you can. 


Don 't remove the moisture-proof wrapping from 
yunr package of Camels after you open it. The 
Camel Humidor Pack is protection against 
sweat, sea air, dust and germs. It can be de- 
pended upon to deliver fresh Camels every time

Through tropic heat 
and thundering salvos FRIGIDAIRE 

sails with Hying colors 

A TEN DAY cruise to Caribbean 
waters ... to the sun scorched 
sky of Guantanamo Bay. The recon- 
ditioned S.S. Pennsylvania sailed on 
one of the most gruelling tests put 
to fighting craft. 

Armaments and equipment were 
to be taxed to the utmost. And 
among this equipment was Frigidaire. 
Frigidaire Ice Cream Cabinets in the 
ship's soda fountain, Frigidaire 
equipment to help freeze ice cream 
... ice cream to cool the parched 
palates of the sun-swept crew. 

Not once did Frigidaire falter. Not 
once did it fail to supply the zero 
temperatures so necessary to keep 
ice cream firm and cold. Not even 
when the mercury boiled merrily at 
I 30 degrees in the compressor room. 

And when the climax came . . . 
when twelve fourteen-inch guns fired 
five thundering salvos . . . terrific 
concussions that rocked the ship from 
stem to stern . . . the supreme test 
of all equipment . . . Frigidaire came 
through with flying colors, remained 
undamaged, did not once pause in 
its perfect operation. 

Not only in this test, but in others, 
Frigidaire has earned its right to sail 
with the Navy. Built with stamina to 
withstand terrific wear and tear, built 
with surplus power to operate effi- 
ciently under extreme temperatures, 
built to meet practically every re- 
frigeration need . . . Frigidaire truly 
represents the last word in advanced 
refrigeration. Frigidaire Corpora-

'T^HE XP2M-1, the latest and largest flying boat built 

■*■ by Martin, is the very latest development in flying 

boat construction, embodying features of design never 

before incorporated in the construction of flying boats. 

Navy engineers, in conjunction with the Martin 
Company's engineers, have for a long time been study- 
ing design and construction of large flying boats, until 
this type of aircraft is now perfected to a point where 
it is capable of taking its rightful place among other 
successful types of aircraft. 

Its refinement of hull lines, eliminating heavy spray 
in rough water take-offs and taxiing; its new deep Vee 
bottom, permitting safe and easy landings on rough 
water without shock; and its great reserve of power, giv- 
ing excellent take-off and flying characteristics when 
heavily loaded, attest to the advancement made in the 
design of this type of aircraft, and to the ability of the 
Martin Company, through exhaustive engineering and 
research methods, to produce quality aircraft.

Eastward ho! Four thousand miles nearer the rising sun — let's go! 
To the land of mosques and minarets. Let's see this strange, strange 
country. Let's see the land where the tobacco* grows in small leaves 
on slender stalks — to be tenderly picked, leaf by leaf, hung in long 
fragrant strings, shelter-dried and blanket-cured. Precious stuff! 
Let's taste that delicate aromatic flavor — that subtle difference

Four famous kinds of Turkish leaf — 
Xanthi, Cavalla, Smyrna, Samsoun — go

To win the approval of the U. S. Navy for ob- 
servation work with the Battle and Scouting 
Fleets, an airplane must have speed, climb 
and maneuverability well beyond the severest 
requirements of commercial flying. Depend- 
ability and stamina are as basically necessary 
as engine and empennage. Flights that start 
on the catapult and end in the hoist sling 
are convincing tests of quality in design and 
structure. Because each of the series of new 
"Corsair" designs has passed all of these 
tests by generous margins, the Vought 
"Corsair" has long been the observation plane 
used on the Navy battleships and scout 
cruisers. Chance Vought Corporation, East

UN lOyZ Charles Duryea's gasoline automobile, 
America's first, chugged up the street. From this 
queer looking horseless buggy of 1892 there has de- 
veloped an industry with 1930 sales of over 2 billion. 

The General American Tank Car Corporation 
has been an indispensable aid to the develop- 
ment of the automotive industry. Its vast fleet 
of tank cars has made possible the economical 
distribution of petroleum products, essential to 
the widespread use of the automobile. 

I IN lyUU Count Ferdinand Von Zeppelin's 
strange cigar-shaped contraption rose into the air. 
From it developed the modern dirigible . . . and the 
largest airship ever built . . . the Akron. 

Helium fills the huge bag of the Akron . . . the gas 
being transported in a General American con- 
structed car. Before this car was built, helium 
could only be carried at great cost in small 
cylinders . . . and the helium car today has be- 
come an important factor in the economical 
operation of American dirigibles. 

I IN IV I O The mechanical silk worm had been 
struggling for years, getting nowhere. Yet, in 1926, 
when 62,575,000 pounds of rayon were produced, 
artificial silk was rapidly becoming as common as 

Essential to rayon manufacture is caustic soda, 
which must be of low iron content. To avoid 
iron contamination, such as frequently resulted 
when caustic soda was shipped in bulk, General 
American built a nickel-lined car which de- 
livers liquid caustic soda in a pure condition. 
This invention alone saves rayon producers hun- 
dreds of thousands of dollars annually. 

I IN lYZD Mechanical refrigerators came into 
general use. Today such refrigerators are common. 
These modern ice chests use many refrigerants . . . 
ammonia, iso-butane, methyl chloride, sulfur diox- 
ide, dichlorodi-fluoro methane. 

To meet the demands of this industry, General 
American constructed special high-pressure tank 
cars which transport these refrigerants. In this 
way, General American tank cars have aided in 
the development of another great industry, have 
helped bring mechanical refrigeration to the 
American home. 

I IN I7JX Who knows what the great discovery 
will be? Yet, possibly one will be made ... as far- 
reaching in its consequences as many of the major 
discoveries of the past thirty years. The great dis- 
covery of 1932 may create a demand for some new 
railroad car. And, when the new car is needed, you 
can be sure that General American will build it. 



...from the Marietta 

to the San Francisco 

In the fifty years that embraces the entire evolution of 
modern methods of generating steam, The Babcock & 
Wilcox Company has advanced from installations in the 
Gunboats Marietta, Annapolis, and Chicago of 1896 to

loosa . . . modern examples of economy and efficiency 
secured through the use of steam at higher pressures and 

This organization is not only grateful that it has been 
allowed to place its accumulated experience at the dis- 
posal of the United States Navy . . . but justly proud of 
the part played as the service has established records of 
real achievement.

Many noted colleges and schools have entrusted 
The Du Bois Press with the production of their 
Year-Books. We feature fine books, catalogues 
and color printing. Note the following comment: 

Reprint from the Inland Printer, the leading Business 
and Technical Journal of the World in the Printing 
and Allied Industries. Written by the Editor, J. L. 
Frazier, whom we thank for his all too generous 
praise of this and former modest contributions of 
The Du Bois Press to the Printing Art. 

"When we look over examples of your work we feel 
like making use of the famous Buick slogan and 
writing, 'When better printing is possible Du Bois 
will do it.' Your house-organ, The Du Bois Acorn, 
is invariably outstanding, but the latest issue, Vol- 
ume II, No. 4, sets a new mark in excellence of 
layout, typography, colors, and printing. The effect 
is smartly modern, not, however, let us add, 'mod- 
ernistic,' a term which now has and deserves a black 
eye among the people of discriminating taste. The 
various types of illustrations are beautifully rendered 
in colors, an especially interesting feature being the 
printing of the distinctive decorative features, initials, 
and tailpieces in delicate pastel shades suggestive of 
water colors. The cover is a knockout. Indeed, we 
cannot imagine one having the most particular and 
important work to be done hesitating for a fraction 
of a second over your ability to handle it in wholly 
fitting manner."

The day of days arrives at last, from Severn s shores 
you go — This one last thought remember, Lads — They re 
watching from below! 

What of the four long years of training for a lifetime of service? 
How short they soon will seem! Today you proudly don the 
hard-earned insignia 01 rank — an officer's insignia in the Navy 
of your Country. The world lies before you now, beckoning 
with its false hopes and fading joys, rainbowed over a lifetime 
of hard knocks, temptations and disappointments. 

Fear not to face Life's challenge, for men are made of sterner stuff. 

In the midst of Life's battles, when angry seas of sorrow, pain, 
or despair rise in fury to dash your ship on some unchartered 
rocks, may the Navy Spirit hover over you — and strong firm 
hands reach from watery graves perchance, to warn you that 
danger is nigh, and help you bring your ship safe home. 

What a heritage is yours! Guard it all your life as a priceless jewel! 

The day of days arrives at last, from Severn s shores 
you go — This one last thought remember, Lads — They re
